Method R + C.J. Date = Fun!

I just got an email blast from Mr. Cary Millsap.

It reads as follows:
This brief note is to update you on some of the things we've been doing at Method R Corporation.

C. J. Date seminar - There's a new course on our schedule: we've invited Chris Date to teach "How to Write Accurate SQL and Know It: A Relational Approach to SQL" January 26-28, 2010 in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Our make-or-break date for the course is December 4, 2009, so if you're interested please enroll soon. I'm personally excited about the opportunity to sit in a classroom for three days with one of the inventors of our whole industry.

MR Tools - A few weeks ago, we released a new set of software tools that let you do some pretty unbelievable things with Oracle trace data. Take a look at our Guided Tour pages behind the individual tool links at

Method R Profiler - Recently, we released Method R Profiler 5.2.0. The Profiler now runs on Mac and Linux, in addition to Windows. And new with 5.2 is a graphical user interface that's a genuine pleasure to use. I was always a command line guy when I used the Profiler, but with the new 5.2 GUI, I'm sold.
The tools are currently a bit out of my league, but the opportunity to listen to C.J. Date would be cool (cool as in geek chic or nerd chic of course). I have no idea what my schedule will be like at this point, but I would definitely like to attend. Hopefully I'll have some things tied up so I can plan for it.
