This course takes a comprehensive look at the Oracle PL/SQL programming language. We begin with a thorough review of the language syntax and datatype primitives. We next explore user-defined datatypes, flow control, scope and error management.
The majority of the course is devoted to taking that foundational knowledge and applying it to the resolution of very real-world examples. Real-world examples include:
Join Dr. Phillips as he transfers his many years of PL/SQL programming skill and knowledge.
I received my Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in Visual Psychophysics with a minor in Computer Science. I worked my entire professional career within the computer industry specializing in relational database design and large-scale international databases.
Out of school, I went to work for VeriFone the credit card processing company because they were headquartered in Hawaii and I yearned to get out of the cold of Wisconsin. I started as employee #36. By the time I left, they were publically traded, had thousands of employees and billions in revenue. At the time of my departure, I was VeriFone's Database Design Manager and oversaw a technical staff of 125+.
I subsequently served as MIS Manager for Family Health International, Database Manager for A4 Health Systems, and CTO and President of Castle Worldwide. I retired from Castle in 2014 at the age of 55.
After retirement I was searching for a great means to keep my hands in technology. Teaching with Udemy has provided that venue. I enjoy creating the courses and interacting with the students. It is my new passion. Middle aged and young people are my favorite students - seeing them better utilize their new toys and skills gives me great pleasure, such energy.
I am a huge advocate of life-long learning and love this opportunity to share that passion with others. Remember, "keep on learning."
