Useful Links Reply

IMPORTANT NOTE: For the past few months I was able to subscribe to a huge amount of feeds, and it will take a lot of time to put them all here in a neat and categorized manner. Instead of going through the painful way, I just shared them all on my “Google Reader Shared Items” which you can view/subscribe here https://www.google.com/reader/shared/karlarao. BTW, topics of interest are categorized into “Buckets” so you can opt to subscribe just on the topic that you want (example: Oracle Blogs, Storage, Servers, etc..)

Oracle Blogs and Sites - Last Updated: March 30, 2010

Below are some blogs and sites I recommend.. I hope you could get some links you find interesting and put ‘em in your RSS reader (most of the links shown are on my Google Reader). People listed here (in my opinion) are one of the best in the community, I follow the blogs/sites of these people to get/make some new ideas and I update this page regularly with new links that I find useful :) I’ve categorized them already!
