No you are wrong, I'm not an expert in oracle - I'm a novice - absolutely 100% which is why I wanted to start learning some of it to counter some rubbish Denial Again Morgan posted.

To my suprise I found the documentation very very poor, very hard to follow for somebody trying to find how to do 'x'.

It's fine if you want to look up the syntax of a command but if you really want to find out how to do something without a starting point it's time consuming and difficult.

I think other people agree with me here based on private feedback I've had via my blog, talking with other folks and feedback on the oracle forums.

I think 21 years developing, 5 of them on DB2 and the rest on SQL Server, the level of interaction I have with leading experts in the SQL Server field and the amount of training I have received and continue to receive pretty much classifies me as an expert, my clients and peers see me as one - but that is in SQL Server and nothing else.

I don't have an up-to-date resume because people come to me via my blog, name referal and through being known as an expert in the SQL UK community; but if you like I can send you the last one I did some 10 years ago now.
