November CodeTalk Webcast: A View from the Trenches: Oracle Database Development at Moovit

Millions of people develop applications on top of Oracle Database. The most secure and optimized of those applications take full advantage of SQL and PL/SQL.

In our next CodeTalk webcast, I will interview Oren Nakdimon of Moovit, lead developer for the backend of this popular transit app, to find out just how he and his small team have made the most of PL/SQL, and how they manage their PL/SQL code base.


Oren gave an excellent presentation at OOW16 describing how they have been able to leverage Edition-Based Redefinition (EBR) to minimize downtime and improve delivery of new services to users. He mentioned briefly in that talk (a) how much he enjoys PL/SQL and (b) the features of the language he appreciates most.

Don't worry, Tom. He likes SQL an awful lot, too. :-)

So I thought it would be interesting to hear about how Moovit uses PL/SQL in more detail. That's what we will be discussing on November 16 starting at 10 AM Chicago time.

Real world PL/SQL. From a really sharp crew. I expect to learn a lot, and you will, too.

Don't miss it: register now!

  4. "Oren gave an excellent presentation at OOW16 describing how they have been able to leverage Edition-Based Redefinition (EBR) to minimize downtown"

    Wow, PL/SQL really is powerful. I imagine if you make downtown smaller, it makes it a lot easier to get around. An inventive solution to the problem of mass transit.

  5. Ha! I wish I could say that wasn't a typo and in fact you can use PL/SQL to downsize cities. Instead, I will fix the typo. :-)

  6. Oren is great in ALL his presentations :):)

    I still remember his EBR presentation at one of our ILOUG
    meetings ... unfortunately not held any more ...

    But I am happy for his entry into the big world :):)
    ... unfortunately, not accessible for so many of us ...

    Hope to attend the upcoming webcast :)

    And also hope that Oren will not abandon his appearances in
    our "local" events :):)

    Best Regards,
    Iudith
