Hi, my name is Anton, I work at Paratus Telecommunications in Namibia, Africa as revenue assurance officer. I have always been playing around with data and would like to expand into the procedural side of Database Dev.
My name is Rick Benz, I live in Wisconsin, USA with my lovely wife, 2 cats and 2 dogs. I work for one of the best companies ever, Terracon, we are an engineering conciliating firm and I am an Application Administrator.
I missed getting into the last time this course was offered in September or so and I would want to learn more about PL/SQL so I can work towards a development position.
I am also a full time student working towards a B.S. Information Technologies with a Minor in Business Logistics.
I look forward to chatting with everyone, but not sure I have that much time since I see there are 1836 people enrolled as of 5 minutes ago.....
My online name is mathguy (all lower-cap); I live on the West Coast of the USA. I am now retired, after two long careers - one as a mathematician, in academia, and the other in financial services. I have been using software all along; I learned FORTRAN on my own, when I was in middle school, and I learned Unix before I ever heard of DOS - I know, it's strange; but I never worked in IT. I started learning SQL - specifically, Oracle - last year. I am an active participant on the SQL and PL/SQL forum on OTN, as well as on Stack Overflow.
I do all this out of pure curiosity, I enjoy learning; my ultimate goal, if I ever get there, is to develop various solutions to practical problems (from the field I am familiar with: finance) in the public domain.
I have read some PL/SQL already, from Steven Feuerstein's book, plus Oracle documentation online; even so, I think I may learn a few things I haven't seen before. I look forward to this course!

Mij name is Albert Keizer. I'm from the Netherlands. Part of my job is database administration and I feel I can be more productive when I get more fluent in PL/SQL. Also to understand code produced by developers better. This is the reason I'm taking the course. To refresh and fill the gaps on SQL I also enrolled in the SQL introduction MOOC Course.
Thanks for providing this course.
