Blogs to read in the Oracle DBA/Developer world

:Earlier this month, I conducted a totally unscientific survey on Twitter, asking where people got their Oracle news from. Twitter and the NoCOUG Journal were two popular sources, along with a wide range of blogs. Here are some of the blogs that the Oracle DBA & Dev superstars in my Twitter like to read:

BTW, I notice that David Fitzjarrell’s blog was named one of the top 50 SQL blogs in 2016 by Ben’s DatabaseStar blog, itself a good blog with a strong focus on Oracle SQL for developers. I recommend checking out Ben’s list for more SQL blogs!

I also learned about a couple of terrific Oracle blog aggregators:

I’ve got a couple of my own to add to the list.

I also follow the articles on

And there are some official Oracle blogs I like to keep my eye on:

And of course, there’s Ask Tom, which has an RSS feed for newest questions.

I’m experimenting with Feedly as my new RSS reader. Do you have a favorite Oracle blog, magazine or RSS reader? Let me know in the comments!

    Do you think Feedly is good DASHBOARD for all RSS feed ? Netvibes was good back 10 years ago but stopped most of RSS feed. It was able to read facebook, linkedin and all other social media as well.

      Hi Shaun, so far I’m liking it well enough for all of my Oracle feeds. I haven’t been reading RSS feeds in any other area though. I wanted something that would take almost no time to configure and be accessible from multiple devices, and feedly does that. Have you tried any others?

    Hi Natalka;as I mentioned I was using NETVIBES.COM for past 10 years and recentley stops some RSS feed of some blogs. Also i need to have access or see all my social media content in on place which netvibes use to do.

    Thank you again.
