Presentation Title: How Oracle Works in 50 Minutes
Speaker: Mr Martin Widlake Oracle ACE Oaktable
Company: ORA600
Presentation abstract: Yes, this really is an overview of how the Oracle RDBMS engine works in under an hour.

The Oracle database engine is a highly complex system. However, at it's core, what it does 95% of the time is a relatively simple set of processes. You need know no more than what a SELECT statement is but by the end of this session you will understand how Oracle puts data into the database, how it is taken out, what consistent gets really are, why redo is crucial, how contention works, the way each session sees only real data even as it changes.

All of this can be understood at a general level in 50 minutes {but I will talk fast :-) }
