Well 11g has been out for a couple of years now and 11g release 2 11.2 will be out Sept 1st.

Typically many shops like to wait until a second release is available ( 11.2 ) before deploying it extensively. That time is now.

Certification is not worth much without related relevant experience. If you are in a spot where you are getting that experience then sometimes certification can make a difference at least getting past HR screening. Received on Fri Jul 24 2009 - 16:54:49 CDT
