I recently wrote about the announcement of Oracle Database 23c Free Developer Release. In this post I will provide step-by-step instructions to install Oracle Database 23c Free Developer Release using the VirtualBox Appliance provided by the Oracle product development team. Using this method, they have made it very easy to quickly get started!
Oracle Database 23c FREE – Developer Release
Oracle have (at the regional Oracle CloudWorld event in Singapore) just announced Oracle Database 23c Free Developer Release. If you are familiar with Oracle Database, you will know all about Oracle Database XE. This announcement is effectively a replacement of what would have been Oracle XE 23, built and made available with developers in mind. Ultimately, this new offering gives developers "early access" to build new applications, enhance or upgrade existing applications using all of the new features that 23c offers.
Oracle Autonomous Database: Load Data from a Local File
In this post we will look at the data load from local file feature of "database actions" including how to access this feature and how to use it! This data loading feature is really simple to use allowing you to efficiently create tables or update existing tables with data that you might have stored locally or in the cloud, all without writing any code.

In this post, I document the steps to help you create your own Oracle ATP Database Service.
Oracle PL/SQL: SELECT INTO
Like many in the Oracle community, I occasionally find myself looking through forums and helping out where I can. I consistently see some basic questions cropping up in forums like StackOverflow, often the same question over and over again - one of which is regarding the "SELECT INTO" statement. I have found myself writing responses to questions about SELECT INTO statements many times and so I figured that I would write up an explanation of how to properly use this and then I can reference this post's URL in response to questions on this topic! Side note: It's been quite some time that I used PL/SQL and really enjoyed spinning up an oracle database in my free tier account and writing this post - perhaps expect a few more similar style posts alongside my usual content (maybe more commonly asked forum topics)
