How To Get Started Quickly With SQL Developer, Even If You've Used Other Software Before
A New Guide Shows You How To Set Up And Get Started Quickly With Oracle SQL Developer And Get It Running The Way You Want
Does you workplace not want to pay the license fees for Toad, even though you know it's the best program for Oracle SQL developers?
Are you stuck using SQL Developer and want to get up to speed quickly?
Do you want an easy way to set up SQL Developer so you don't waste time trying to learn how to use it?
I've done some research and also looked at my own experience with Oracle SQL. The official documentation for SQL Developer is messy and hard to navigate. I thought there must be a better way to learn how to use SQL Developer, especially if you're coming from another program like Toad or PL/SQL Developer.
One of the biggest problems with moving to a new program is learning where everything is.
You want to know what the layout of the application is. You want to know where the settings are, so you can change something if you're used to a different behaviour. You want to know how you can use it quickly.
As a result, I've created the SQL Developer Quick Start Guide. The guide addresses these very problems, so you can get up and running with SQL Developer without messing around.
At my first job, we had to stop using Toad because of the licensing fees. We weren't happy, because we were all used to using Toad and had really depended on some of its features.
I didn't want to move to SQL Developer. I thought I wouldn't be as productive with it, and everything I liked about Toad would not be possible in SQL Developer.
I didn't want to have to spend a long time trying to get a new program set up and learn how to use it, when I had my own work to get done and a project that wasn't going to wait.
Have you felt like that before?
It's frustrating, isn't it?
You just want to know what to do and get to writing SQL code as soon as possible.
Well, this problem is now easy to overcome.
With the SQL Developer Quick Start Guide, you can get started straight away. The guide will show you how to get started using SQL Developer and get it running the way you want.
I wish I had something like this when I made the move over to SQL Developer. It would have saved me so much time!
This guide contains screenshots and steps to get SQL Developer up and running. You can implement the tips and features I share in only a couple of hours.
You can tweak the program to behave just how you like it. You can set up keyboard shortcuts to the way you're used to. You can get your database connections for your whole team set up quickly and easily.
Imagine you being productive with this new tool.
Imagine being able to quickly and easily get done what you need to do for your project.
Imagine knowing all the keyboard shortcuts to speed up the way you do your tasks.
I show you how to get started with SQL Developer in this guide.
I've been in this situation before. I've been writing Oracle SQL for years, and am an Oracle Certified SQL Expert. I've made the move to SQL Developer and know how hard it can be.
This guide is easy to use and much easier to read than other guides or tutorials out there.
You can focus on...
Freedom to spend time doing actual work.
Recognition for being efficient.
Freedom to use the program how you want.
Recognition in the team.
The SQL Developer Quick Start Guide is a short, 19-page PDF file that gives you all the features mentioned above.
As part of the guide, you'll get:
- Links to videos I've made on how to download and set up Oracle SQL Developer
- Step by step instructions to create a connection, including common error messages
- How to import and export connections so your entire team can work with the same connection information.
- How to find the Settings/Preferences inside the program
- A list of settings that you might want to change
- An explanation of what each toolbar button does
- Details on how the Shortcut Keys section works and how to customise it
- A list of helpful default shortcuts that you might use regularly
You could save a few days of effort by using this guide.
Setting up the program takes time, and knowing how to do it will help.
Getting your team to use the same connection settings can save the entire team time, both now and in the future.
You'll be recognised by your colleagues as someone who is interested in making the team work better and someone who is geniunely helpful.
You'll get recognised by your manager as someone who takes initative and has good suggestions to improve the productivity of the team.
What if you don't buy this guide?
You'll probably spend a few days learning the basics and trying to get the program working how you want it. You'll do countless Google searches. Your team will have inconsistent connection settings, which makes it harder to debug issues.
This is a small investment in your career.
For the price of two cups of coffee, you can save many hours of time setting up SQL Developer and get more productive with the tool.
For less than the cost of a Netflix membership, you can be recognised by your team as a team player, someone who wants the team to stay productive, and not waste time.
A couple of weeks from now you could be using SQL Developer like a pro, because you've had this guide to get you started the right way.
Or, you could still be working out how to use it, with the default settings that actually make things worse for you, and your project at risk of being delayed because your team hasn't quite got used to how to use the tool.
Don't wait any longer.
