Very cool interview with Maria Colgan

Community work can be so much fun. When working for the German Oracle User Group, DOAG, one of my favourite jobs is interviewing interesting people for doag.tv.

In fall 2019, we recorded a fun interview with Maria Colgan, Master Product Manager for the Oracle Database. I had the chance to prepare the story: Based on her talk at our annual DOAG Conference in Nuremberg, it was all about IT WARS – the eternal battle between DBAs and developers!

Part One

Welcome, my personal expert for wars… 🙂

Favourite quotes: “Developers really aren’t just using the great technologies of the database <…> do all your joins in the app code, use the database as a bit bucket”. NOT, of course!

Part Two

In the end, both kids will cry!
