Happy 1st Anniversary to Oracle Learning Library

The Oracle Learning Library (OLL) is celebrating its first year anniversary this month. Throughout the first year, it's provided many things, including:

  • Almost 1,700 content items
  • Launched a mobile version, supporting iOS, Android, and Windows 7 devices

Here's what some of our customers have said about the content found on the OLL:

  • "Excellent : concise, short and extremely helpful."
  • "Excellent - A must for everyone"
  • "Very good material, easy to understand, nice flow."
  • "Wow this is my new favourite way to learn APIs!"
  • "Very well organized and informative. Well packed with facts, practical guidance, and concerns to be aware of. The liberal references to MOS notes is appreciated."
  • "This demo just lays out the basics of the architecture that the rest of the demos will use. Its great to see 4 servers, 2 pools, iSCSI and fibre channel storage - I can't build something like this myself, so this gives me an opportunity to 'look over someone else's shoulder'."

OLL content is comprised of learning materials addressing many Oracle products.  Please check it out as we enter year two!
