What is the Big Question?

Take a look and see the importance of knowing what the Big Question is. Then go for it!

The video seminars are awesome. Prior to OraPub I had no idea what ASH was. Now I use it all the time for identifying bottlenecks. Helping members with Oracle issues on the member Slack forum is a great opportunity to geek out, too.

Craig's teachings are exceptional, and he explains complex topics in a simple way. The tools he develops are top notch, and I had a very good success rate tuning the production databases using his tools. If you are serious about database tuning, you should definitely look into an OraPub membership.
