If you are at all interested in upgrade to Oracle Database 12c, you really should sign up for the Virtual Technology Summit for February. This is a “pseudo-live” event with recorded webcasts and live experts online to answer questions. Even better, it includes a hands-on lab that will take you through the process of:
- Upgrading from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168
- Plugging that upgraded database in as a PDB
- Migrating a second 22.214.171.124 database to a second PDB using the new Full Transportable Export/Import feature
The Virtual Technology Summit will run three times:

We think you will find the VM environment really useful to keep around for those times when you want to try something out, without having to install binaries or create databases.
