The Quest® Ask Toad® monthly sessions are in full swing for 2020, and we are presenting a variety of helpful tutorials for database administrators and developers alike. July’s session focuses on how Toad for Oracle Base edition helps developers cope with the pressure to code faster while still producing high-quality PL/SQL that doesn’t break anything or slow down the database.


We all know that poor quality code can have a ripple effect through the database—causing slowdowns that take time, money and resources to resolve. It’s up to developers to ensure their code is clean, but we don’t expect you to do it by hand or on your own. That’s where Toad for Oracle comes in.
