Man repairing the engine of a car

The Oracle Autonomous Database (ADB) is Oracle's current flagship database product and rightly so! Each instance comes with self-tuning, self-patching and several Oracle Database Options that customer would otherwise have to purchase separate licenses for. Database developers will also be pleased to know that there are a suite of tools at your disposal including Oracle Application Express (APEX), Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) and Oracle Machine Learning Notebooks.

The minimum instance you can create will have 1 CPU and 1 TB of storage and with so much features, doesn't come cheap. Here's the good news though, Oracle provides everyone two Always Free ADBs through the Oracle Cloud Free Tier offering. Yes, that's a great deal for anyone wanting to host a simple web application on the Internet. It is however, not without limits.

Singapore National Day Parade - March Past

Every Singaporean Son grows up to respond to a codeword alongside an image of a soldier on guard.

When your codeword is flashed on the screen, you wrap up whatever you are doing, head home, pack, bid your goodbyes and then report to camp. Hence, when I heard this call to help, instinct kicked in and I had to respond.

Happy New Year!

Probably too late for New Year greetings, but not if you also celebrate the Lunar New Year that's coming really soon. For readers who, like me, celebrate this festival, I'd like to take the opportunity to wish you 新年快乐,万事如意!

It's now been almost a year since the APEX Challenge Coin was released, and I must say, it's made 2019 a year to remember!

Horizontal Old Weights

A reader left an interesting comment/question in my previous post on Making the Move to the Autonomous Database:

"Would You explain how can i check my on-premise DB to satisfy ADB size limitation 20G? What is the size 20G of?"

This is an excellent question to ask before embarking on any Autonomous Database (ADB) migration plans and so I dug a bit deeper.

Happy toddler clapping

My #ThanksOGB will be short and sweet!

Most in the community probably don't know, but I am a sucker for military stories and even more crazy about hard-to-find memorabilia. Earlier this year, I took a gamble and started a little social experiment and minted a small batch of APEX Challenge Coins.

The coins demonstrated our deep appreciation for APEX developers who have impacted our lives. Through the process of distributing them worldwide, I was blessed to have basked in the warmth of givers and the happiness of receivers. Words cannot describe the emotions and joy I felt each time someone opens his or her little mail packet to find a gift of gratitude.

So... for my #ThanksOGB appreciation post this year, I wanted to express again, my heartfelt gratitude to all APEX Challenge Coin sponsors for making this project a success. Thank you for supporting APEX developers!
