Limits of SQL Optimization Toastmasters Talk

I think I’m done with the script for my Toastmaster’s talk: pdf

It’s Toastmaster’s talk 3 “Get to the Point” so I’m trying to do a 5-7 minute talk that focuses on how Oracle’s SQL optimizer sometimes chooses a slow plan.  It’s tough to say anything meaningful in 7 minutes and I’m not using any kind of slides so I have to describe everything verbally.

But, it’s a topic I’m passionate about so I will enjoy giving it.  I kind of got bogged down thinking about ways to relate this information to my non-technical audience’s life and I decided to give up on that.  I would probably need another 7 minutes or more to explain why they should care that there are limits to SQL optimization so I decided to focus on convincing them that the limits exist.
