Oracle Offers Free Developer Education Online
by Steve Anglin
Oracle offers free developer education online, attempting to apply lessons taught by the open source code movement. This effort should at least educate the 1.5 million developers that it says are registered to participate in the Oracle Technology Network; that is, develop Java and XML applications with Oracle tools and technologies.
But will Oracle take the next step by offering an online education for those who may not use Oracle? Probably not. However, this would be a good way to rebuild their Oracle University program.
But, it is an interesting point that Oracle may be modeling the open source movement.
