Oracle Database 12c: PL/SQL I – Introduction (DB6162)

This course introduces one to Oracle database programming using the PL/SQL programming language. One will learn the syntax, structure and features of the language. This course will also lay the foundation for the entire Sideris Oracle PL/SQL programming series, allowing one to progress from introductory topics to advanced application design and programming and finally onto writing complex high-performance applications. 

PL/SQL may be considered as one of the basic skill sets required for any Oracle professional, nearly as important as the SQL language itself.
