Oracle on .NET and Windows BOF Session

Hello from Tech·Ed! I have been very busy giving demos of the new PL/SQL debugger that we have integrated into Visual Studio 2005. That feature and of course .NET stored procedures has been very popular with the crowds. And Alex Keh has been showing off all of the new ADO.NET 2.0 features in ODP.NET... If you are at Tech Ed, please come by our booth for your own demo.

Just a reminder that we have a "Birds of a Feather" session on Tuesday evening where you can come and ask a panel of experts about Oracle, .NET and Windows:
