need some career advice on database technologies / skills
Posted on 2011-10-19
I am a Oracle database developer getting a little stale on the skills, as far as broadening my skills base.
So I have the following skills that can get me a job
- Unix scripting
and some HTML skills thrown in for good measure.
I've been going down the path of Java certification for like 5 years, just can't get into it and I don't do it during the day so I have nothing to drive me to learn it.
here at work they use Informatica, but now they're migrating to Microsoft SSIS / SSRS, etc. Informatica seems clunky compared to a demo I saw of SSIS.
I briefly looked at Oracle ADF and that looks Java centric.
I also looked at ODIEE briefly so I suppose that's in the same league as Informatica / SSIS.
What I'm good at is data / basic screens. For a while I was good at Access, then when I tried to move to Java I was like, whoa, what is all this stuff ? it doesn't seem intuitive at all, that's just my take on it.
