Available January

I've just discovered that my current contract, with a healthcare company in Hampshire, will not be extended beyond the end of the year. So, in the current economic climate, I've decided to start a blog in order to drum up more business.

My primary skills are in troubleshooting and tuning Oracle systems, from entire databases to individual SQL queries.

If you have an application running on an Oracle database and you need someone to investigate an issue on that system, get in touch.

"My name is Peter Moore. I am a professionally qualified and highly experienced database administrator with extensive knowledge and skills in Oracle database technologies from V5 to Oracle10gR2 gained over the past twenty years. I have experience working with various Oracle toolsets, on different platforms, demonstrating a hard-working, self-motivated attitude. I am approachable, enthusiastic, and an effective communicator."

As that bumpf, culled directly from my CV, shows, this blog is primarily intended to help me find work. If you require help with any Oracle RDBMS related activities, get in touch.
