If you are someone searching for knowledge on Oracle SQL and Oracle PL/SQL, you have come to the right place.
About this site
OracleTuts is a project created by Exillum.
OracleTuts is owned and created by TJ Abrahamsen (that’s me!), a Senior Software Engineer with Oracle experience since 1997. I work with Oracle SQL and PL/SQL on a daily basis, and am currently employed with a large Multi Level Marketing company in Utah.
I originally created the blog, OraBlogger.net, but in end of January 2012, I chose to discontinue this effort, and pursue new possibilities both for YOU as the reader/user, as well as myself.
If you do not already know, “Tuts” is a short slang (often used on the Internet) for the the word “Tutorials”.
My goal with OracleTuts, is for it to become a go-to-place for Oracle SQL and PL/SQL learning. I am doing my best to be a “down-to-earth-teacher”, meaning that I aim to teach even technical stuff in a way that even a novice will not be “lost-in-translation”.
I am originally from Norway, where I grew up. In 2003 I married a beautiful redhead from Utah, and moved to the United States the same year. Together with my wife, I own a large property, where we spend all our spare time.
Among other things, I have created a three mile road myself along the mountainous area of our property, using our own excavator. It was a large project, and it was fun sometimes, and other times a total pain in the butt. A few times I thought my last day had come, especially when my excavator started sliding down the steep mountain side… I managed to brake it a bit with the bucket and it’s teeth, and it ended up stopping against some large Aspen trees. I can from the bottom of my heart say that I have been blessed by the Lord and protected by His angels in a lot of ways…
My wife and I are hard workers, and we almost never have a real vacation. Our kind of “vacation” is working on our property… We are both very goal-driven.
Yeah, I know…I have a LOT more hair now, and beard…
Other interesting things about me:
- I love bicycling on my mountain bike
- My wife and I try to eat as much vegan/raw food as possible. We stay away from dairy, and eat meat (chicken turkey, or fish) occasionally.
- I love blogging, and have a couple of other blogs as well. One of them is called Back To Nature Living.
- I would MUCH rather live out in the nature, among the birds, trees, creeks…than live in the city.
In addition to subscribing to my OraceTuts newsletter, you can follow my blog (and me) here:
I would really like it if you added to this site by sharing your comments. Your opinions, and knowledge matters to us all. All of my posts are open for comments.
It would be nice if OracleTuts could be made into a two-way-communication, and it CAN be…with YOUR help.
