Oracle for Newbies, Power Day

In December you have probably read on this blog about our “Oracle for Newbies” seminar. As posted there we wanted to convince newbies that Oracle is not expensive, nor difficult. With free Oracle products (Oracle XE database, Application Express and SQL Developer) we showed how fast you can set up flexible database structures and professional web applications.

As previously announced there will be a follow-up on this seminar: on Monday, February 9th, iAdvise will organize a Power Day. It will be a very practical and interactive day on which participants will get the opportunity to try out everything. We will guide the participants when they are installing the Oracle software and we will help them while they are creating and deploying their first applications. After this session the attendees will be able to develop their own powerful and professional web applications.

Our objective for this Power Day is that newbies can learn Oracle on a pleasant way! We will keep you informed!

Oracle for Newbies

On Wednesday iAdvise gave an Oracle seminar at the headquarters of Oracle Belgium in Brussels. That’s not THE big news of course, but for this seminar our audience was different. This time we focused the “newbies”, people who‘ve never or hardly heard about Oracle.

With this seminar we wanted to debunk the myths that:

  • Oracle is expensive
  • Oracle is only for the “big” companies
  • Oracle is difficult to install and has steap lurning curve

With life installations and life demo’s we convinced our public. Therefore we only used FREE Oracle products, like Oracle XE Database, Oracle Application Express (Apex) and SQL Developer. We installed the Oracle software life during the seminar. We created a database for a fleet of cars and developed a complete web application in less than no time to manage cars, traffic offences and car accidents. We showed the most important and powerful functionalities of Apex and we even included security.

During the seminar we showed:

  • How easily and quickly you can install the Oracle XE Database and Apex
  • How fast and flexible you can set up a database structure with SQL Developer or Apex
  • How you can create a powerful and professional web application with Apex in no time
  • How Apex is based on a extremely simple architecture
  • How fast you can deploy the application using SQL Developer or Apex
  • How dirt-cheap all these topics are thanks to the free Oracle products

Oracle users already knew this, but at the end of the seminar the “newbies” were also convinced: Oracle is fun !

With the motto “When you hear you forget, when you see you remember, when you do you understand” iAdvise will organize a “Power Day”. During that day we will guide “newbies” while they try this out by theirself.
