I am a software developer that supports and develops an application that connects to both Oracle databases and SQL Server databases.
I want to learn more about database administration. Therefore I am planning to purchase SQL Server Developer edition and install it on my PC at home (it costs around: £60).
I am also planning to download and install Oracle 12C: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/index.html. I believe it is completely free to do this after reading the license agreement (assuming that I do not use if for commercial purposes i.e. I use it for learning purposes only). Is that correct?
I have read many questions on here stating that previous versions are free e.g. this one: Is Oracle free to download?. However, I want to make sure that it is free? - the questions I have read are a few years old at least.
Also when I register on the Oracle website; what do I put as my job title etc. Is this the company I am employed by? - bear in mind that I am not downloading it for them - I am downloading it for me.
