Description

Get started using the free Oracle Express Edition database, SQL Developer, and TOAD in this beginner's walkthrough. 

Once complete, you'll have a fully functioning database and be able to connect to a sample schema, view its objects, and examine the data held within.

This boot camp style course gives you the very basics needed (in just under 2 hours!) to get your foot in the door - whether you're an application developer who's just been christened App DBA, or you're a report developer who'd like to get your own sandbox together to play. 

 Best of all, we're using FREE tools!
