About Me


My name is Jed Walker and this blog is my attempt to put some things I’ve learned or thought about on the web. I hope you find information here useful, entertaining, or thought provoking.

I have been working with Oracle since 1997, initially as a Visual Basic developer working with the Oracle database, then after short stints in Systems Engineering and Production Support, I moved into the role of development DBA. I earned my way to Senior DBA, Manager of database development and administration (technical), Senior Manager of Database Operations (technical), and then went back to purely technical as a Principal Engineer working with PostgreSQL and Oracle including Data Guard and Oracle Real Application Clusters. I’ve also begun working with MySQL, Perl, and PHP starting December 2011.

I am an Oracle Certified DBA in 9i, 10g, and 11g.

Some of my hobbies include reading, gardening, hunting, and motorcycling.
