On 01-May 2014, Tim Gorman is joining Delphix Corporation and EvDBT goes into hibernation until all operations cease.
For almost 16 years, from August 1998 until April 2014, Evergreen Database Technologies, Inc. (EvDBT) was the most virtual of global technology conglomerates, comprised of one person…
Tim Gorman has worked in IT with relational databases since 1984, as an Oracle PRO*C and PL/SQL application developer since 1990, as an Oracle DBA since 1993, and managing/designing very large data warehouses on Oracle since 1994.
Mr Gorman is a technical consultant for Delphix who enable database and storage virtualization to increase the agility of IT development and testing operations.
From 1998 until April 2014, he was an independent technical consultant (www.EvDBT.com) specializing in data warehousing and database administration (particularly application and database performance and data availability). Mr Gorman is past president of RMOUG (Rocky Mtn Oracle Users Group), serving as president from 2003-2006 and from 2011-2014. He has been a member of RMOUG since 1992 and a board member since 1995.
Mr Gorman is currently a member of the board of directors of ODTUG (Oracle Developer Tools Users Group) which is the only truly international and all-inclusive Oracle users group in the world.
He is also a past board member of Project SafeGuard, which provides legal advice to victims of domestic violence.
Tim has co-authored six books, performed technical review on seven more books, has been an Oracle ACE since 2007 and an Oracle ACE Director since 2012, a member of the Oak Table Network since 2002, and has presented at Oracle Open World, Collaborate, KScope, Hotsos, RMOUG, UKOUG, and Oracle users groups in lots of wonderful places around the world.
Now, switching from the professional third-person voice to the real-life first-person voice…
I live in Westminster in colorful Colorado with my partner, Kellyn Pot’vin, who is herself an enormously talented consulting member of technical staff at Oracle Corporation. Prior to joining Oracle Corporation, Kellyn was an Oracle ACE Director, making her and I the only household in the world to boast two Oracle ACE Directors. Kellyn is also a member of the Oak Table Network, again making ours the only household with two Oak Table members. Kellyn has been a multi-platform database administrator on Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL and she blogs as DBAKevlar. I have two children, my son Peter and my daughter Marika, both of whom are adults on their own, and I live with Kellyn and her son Sam, daughter Caitlyn, and son Joshua.
I’m on Facebook, but that I try to separate that out for my personal life, and do not “friend” professional acquaintances unless they have become part of my personal life.
For fun, in winter I snowboard the steeps and deeps, in summer I bicycle (road) long distances, and play squash in any season when I can find someone of like mind.
