Oracle .NET and Visual Studio: Intro and Best Practices
The first part of this session introduces Oracle Database support for .NET, including Oracle Data Provider for .NET (ODP.NET) and Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio. Step by step demos will show how to get started using these free products. We will also discuss the latest features including fully-managed ODP.NET, schema comparison tools, Oracle Database 12c multitenant container database support, NuGet packaging, and new features for Entity Framework.

We show how to use Oracle tuning tools to tune adhoc SQL as well as tuning a running database application to get the best possible performance.
