Presentation 2: SQL Developer Tips for Everyone

Oracle’s FREE SQL Developer tool has matured quickly into a must-have tool for those working with Oracle SQL and PL/SQL. This session has something for everyone, DBAs and developers whether beginner or expert. Attendees will learn new techniques useful in writing code, testing code, tuning, and modeling. Come see why SQL Developer is the favorite tool of so many.
