Software Globalization
Another in a series of discussions with Sergiusz Wolicki, Database Globalization Architect at Oracle Corporation.

Do you have questions about internationalizing your Oracle Database applications, configuring globalization (NLS) settings in the database, or migrating the database character set to Unicode with the DMU utility? Do you want to know the various datetime data types or do you want to understand why you see all these funny characters on the screen in place of the expected non-English data? To find an answer, just join our session and ask -- we can answer most database globalization questions right away and we will be happy to search for an answer to the remaining ones. Within the limits of our expertise, we will also try to answer globalization questions about products other than Oracle Database.

This month office hours will not include a presentation on any specific topic unless you ask for one to be improvised. However, if you plan to attend Oracle OpenWorld, you can find Weiran and me in the demo area (workstation DBA-WU3), where we will demonstrate the new and old features of the Database Migration Assistant for Unicode and answer globalization questions. You are heartily invited to this Office Hours OOW Edition Live, October 22-24 :)
