Guidance for Oracle development

Posted 12 July 2015 - 10:54 PM

Hi. I have planned to switch over to ORACLE development life. But I am as new to oracle that I just know that Oracle is RDBMS by Oracle Corporation. That's it.

But I want to learn it, work in it and be a professional in it. Please guide me some authentic book (s), tutorials or any stuff which could lead me from novice to professional.


Thanks a lot.

What books have you looked at? There are a glut on the typical sites like amazon, oreily, etc.

Well, I don't have purchased any book yet. But a tutorial or a website would be highly laudable. I found a tutorial in youtube, where I learned some basic queries of oracle, but the tutor suddenly switcher to very highly level and I am unable to understand it.

So guide me please.

Lots of results appear when I search "oracle tutorial". For example,

Oracle for Absolute Beginners

I would invest in a book, visiting Amazon and reading through tables of contents and reviews.

Many books will probably focus on the enterprise database, rather than the free version - is there still a free version? 11g? This shouldn't be a major concern, just requiring some initial adjustment, and perhaps skipping a couple of chapters. However, if there is a beginner book that sounds good but is also based on the personal/free database, then that's good.

(I suspect that even if a book might focus on the enterprise edition, it might offer some sidenotes specific to the free/smaller version.)

Yes, Oracle Database 11g Express Edition is free. That page also links to a lot of documentation and tutorials, so is probably worth checking out even if you don't need the free version.
