Thu, 06 Oct 2011 09:25:01 +0000Hello Jonathan, How does Columbo work with Oracle?
Wed, 05 Oct 2011 19:22:53 +0000Hello David, for data compare, you can also try the following: http://nobhillsoft.com/columbo.aspx it lets you compare tables, but also just plain queries, batch SQLS etc... and has much greater flexibility in reporting and generation of migration scripts (i work for this company)
Mon, 03 Oct 2011 15:49:24 +0000Well your post just made me realize I forgot to post about it. I know there was some Tweets about it at the end of August when you mentioned it. I bookmarked it and included it in my weekly bookmark post with the intention of doing a full review in the future. I even promoted theNNT.com at my hospital, which was best received by residents. I will have to do a review post of it soon since I haven't seen a post on this other than you post in which you've singled out #medlibs with blogs ;) ~Alisha
Mon, 03 Oct 2011 15:32:58 +0000Hi Alan! I'd had zero experience developing with Oracle, though plenty with MySQL and a couple years of experience with Sybase. When I interviewed for the job, I was explicit in stating that much of it would require me to develop new skills- and that my favorite way to develop new skills is through problem-solving. I'm a habitual autodidact. It has worked out nicely, too- I get to learn interesting new skills by solving real-world problems. I love it.
Mon, 03 Oct 2011 15:15:05 +0000Congrats on the new job! I second africker's question re: tech skills pre-job, and also how you're building them. Thanks for the resource as well!
Mon, 03 Oct 2011 14:40:04 +0000Sounds like a great new job. Based on your other post fairly techy indeed - how much of the tech stuff DB skills wise did you have before you started? NNT is a great resource - not one that often gets shouted about It has slowly been building up entries but perhaps the relatively small number partially excuses the lack of conversation about it.

Thu, 14 Jul 2011 14:31:48 +0000That's an excellent motto! I'd contend, though, that the [small] gap between good enough and excellence is one of those 80/20 pareto effort drains. To sort of tack on to Mark's link, it's often a decision of quantity versus quality; of releasing early and often or releasing highly-polished products.
