Happy New Year to you, your family, and Oracle, too. What new stuff is on the horizon at Oracle for 2009? "Inquiring Oracle users want to know ..."

I read your "Tom Kyte's DBA Resolutions for 2009". I live in Chicago and am a looking for a mentor. I just entered the DBA field, was a programmer earlier. I am also looking for an entry level DBA position. Thanks.

Hi Tom,
Read your 2009 resolutions...

If all the DBA's can follow these resolutions, asktom website will have a serious lack of traffic issue:)

I for one hope to sincerely follow them.

Thanks for your continuous great work.

Happy New year Tom.

"Second, I'll have put in place the next generation of DBAs so that I can move up or move over in the future."

I am wondering what you exactly do at Oracle - mostly in your articles etc you say you are a developer (I remember you saying you WERE a DBA earlier).

We all know your seminars and asktom - apart frmo that I would have imagined you would be designing/architecting systems in totality (meaning also about their availability, performance etc) or some such thing - but not a DBA, although there is no doubt you know the stuff.

Maybe you can tell us exactly what you do at Oracle - its amazing a VP is allowed to do DBA stuff. Its quite unlike the VPs in my company :)

this describes a lot of what I did in the past.

In the years since, I've continued being an individual contributor and actually stopped being a VP last year. I moved groups and titles just being titles to me (I don't really care what you call me) gave that up. It was really important to me (the title).

I now work in server technologies here at Oracle, not in sales anymore. I work in the database development organization - closer yet to the product I use every day...
