I get the impression that many of you have thought about getting more acquainted with our development tools and platforms here at Oracle. But I ALSO get the impression that many of you just haven’t had the time.

Listen, learn, ask questions – get started!

So, I’m officially inviting you to participate in a series of upcoming webinars I’ll be hosting.

How they ‘work’

We’ll use a online conference solution that lets me share my desktop with you. I’ll be doing live-demo after a few powerpoint slides to get the business stuff out of the way.

Hopefully I won’t be my myself πŸ™

You’ll be able to ask questions as we go – via voice OR chat.

I’ll answer questions as I can, or take notes to get back to you afterwards.

Try to get in a few minutes before start time – you may need to install the Zoom software, but it’s very quick and easy.

Getting Started with Oracle SQL Developer

You missed it! But that’s OK, I recorded it.

Getting Started with SQLcl

You missed it! But that’s OK, I recorded it.

Getting Started with REST and the Oracle Database via ORDS

You missed it! But that’s OK, I recorded it.

Oracle REST Data Services powers https access to your Oracle Database. We’ll cover just exactly what REST is, why a database person should care, how to quickly stand up ORDS, and we’ll cover a few examples of working with simple SQL statements, scripts, and stored procedures.


I'm a Distinguished Product Manager at Oracle. My mission is to help you and your company be more efficient with our database tools.

    Hi Jeff,

    Not sure if somebody asked, but do you have in your blogs or videos something talking about the “SSH” functionality inside SQLDeveloper?

    Hey Jeff,

    Keep up the awesome work, this tool is everyday better and better, but why you guys jumped from version 4 to 17? ohhhh my !

  4. Glad to see that this will be recorded. I will wait for recorded session as it seems not easy to join from china.


  5. These sound great. Will these be recorded for those of us outside the US time zones?

    • Yes, just don’t tell anyone b/c I want folks to actually show up and participate live!

      Sorry about the TZ, hard to find one that works for NZ and anyone on this side of the planet πŸ™‚

    • Thanks. I promise not to tell a soul outside of the internet.

    • Matthew Holloway

      I too would be super keen to watch the last 2, but getting up in time to be on line before 5am?
