Come join us for a combination presentation and discussion on indexing strategies. Some that work and some that you want to avoid. Some of the topics include:

Tips for teaching your developers about common indexing myths

Methods to interrogate the Oracle dictionary to find candidate indexing columns

Indexing identity columns (sequentially increasing identifiers) to avoid contention

Dropping indexes for bulk loads

With all of these strategies, we encourage sharing your insights beyond what is presented so we can all learn.
