Pete Finnigan is now a member of the Oaktable network

I was asked a week or so ago by one of the members of the Oaktable if I was interested in joining the group. Of course, I accepted as the Oaktable includes a - (broken link) great selection of people who are members and who know a lot about Oracle. I hope to learn a lot from these guys. The Oaktable also hosts a mailing list for the members and the site includes links to info, FAQ, papers etc. The Oaktable have also started publishing Oracle books under the name of the Oaktable press - although I am not certain what Pro Hibernate 3 published in 1969 means on this page?

The three Oaktable books are :- PeopleSoft for the Oracle DBA (Oaktable Press) by David Kurtz, which I have not read but will buy and do so when I get chance. There is also Mastering Oracle PL/SQL: Practical Solutions by Connor et al. This book I have got and have read, it is excellent and worth reading. Finally the third book is Oracle Insights: Tales of the Oak Table which is also an excellent read. I am looking forward to seeing more books released by the Oak Table press.
