Steven Feuerstein, Oracle Developer Advocate, Oracle
Steven Feuerstein has been obsessed with the Oracle PL/SQL language ever since it first made an appearance in SQL*Forms 3. O’Reily Media published his Oracle PL/SQL Best Practices in 1995 and ever since then Steven’s been writing about PL/SQL, training developers on PL/SQL, and writing a whole lot of PL/SQL himself. Steven has been developing software since 1980, spent five years with Oracle back in the "old days" (1987-1992), and was PL/SQL Evangelist for Quest Software (and then Dell) from January 2001 to February 2014 - at which point he returned joyfully to Oracle Corporation. He was one of the original Oracle ACE Directors and writes regularly for Oracle Magazine, which named him the PL/SQL Developer of the Year in both 2002 and 2006. He is also the first recipient of ODTUG's Lifetime Achievement Award (2009). He now leads a team of Developer Advocates, helping developers leverage Oracle Database to build applications.
