My favorite talk, I show you all the cool stuff you need to know about SQL Developer.

Stuff like this, mostly.

Other stuff we have going on…

Kris and Colm will be giving talks on all things Dev Tools and ORDS. Ashley will be running ORDS/REST in Autonomous Database Hands on Labs. And Barry will be around our Demo Pod for doing ad-hoc demos and taking your questions.

If you come to the Demo Pod and I’m not there, I’m probably nearby or in a talk…I’m not hiding, promise.
