If you have made to this page, you are more than likely curious about who I am. I’m Bobby Curtis and I’m just your normal average guy who has been working in the technology field for awhile (started when I was 18 with the US Army); I write this blog to basically keep notes or items of interest to myself.
The goal of this blog has changed a bit over the years. Initially, it was a general blog where I wrote thoughts down. Then it changed to focus on the Oracle Database, Oracle Enterprise Manager, and eventually Oracle GoldenGate.
If you want to follow me on a more timely manner, I can be followed on twitter at @dbasolved or on LinkedIn under “Bobby Curtis MBA”. I keep my Facebook account for personal conversations with family and a few friends.
Just to be clear –
This blog and any online-content I post, come from me and only me.
Really About Me
My name really is “Bobby Curtis”, not “Robert” or “Rob”. Sometimes, I go by “Bob” as well, but that is few and far between. I’ve been married to my lovely and awesome wife for 20+ years (yes, I know we married young, but wouldn’t trade it at all). Father to three (3) outstanding kids (two of which aspire to be MLB players … only time will tell) although they drive me nuts. And me and my motley crue live in the Metro Atlanta area.
I’ve been in the IT industry since I was 18 (circa 1996) when I joined the US Army as a Network/Systems Administrator. Where I achieved the rank of Sargent (E5), then left the service to pursue a career in IT, not knowing I would end up being a DBA and later Replication guru. If my response or humor comes off a blunt and cold … blame the US Army! After-all, between being a military BRAT and Sargent; my views and opinions vary to many.
The Oracle GoldenGate space is wide and deep at the same time. The posts on this blog, you will hopefully find helpful tips, tricks and walk-throughs that will help you use Oracle GoldenGate against the Oracle Database (primarily), as well as some heterogenous platforms. Over the years, I’ve started to take an interest in the cloud space and technologies.
I’m mostly an introvert but will try to push out of my comfort zone to have some fun with the my family and/or Oracle Community. When I push out of my comfort zone it is usually in the form of attending and speaking at conferences near and far. Maybe we will bump into each other there and have some fun along the way.
