This mean you can always use the Oracle cloud free tier service always free without restriction of any time period.  When one compares with other service provider the trials period is only for month, very few offer always free tier service but the feature or usage is very limited, unlike Oracle cloud.
Oracle Cloud offer following in always free tier.
•Two Autonomous Oracle Database
•Two Compute engine – can be used to create Linux VM
The topic of coverage includes the following.
•Cloud vs On Prem analogy – For better understanding of cloud.
•What’s Cloud & its characteristics
•Getting in & accessing Oracle Cloud infrastructure.
•Oracle cloud infrastructure – components.
•What’s autonomous Database.
•Creating Autonomous Database on Cloud
•Autonomous Database tools – usage and associated demonstration.
•Accessing sql developer through web and sql developer client.
•Populating cloud table from spreadsheet.
•Oracle APEX tool
•Creating workspace.
•Navigation in Oracle APEX.
•Loading data from spreadsheet.
•Creating a simple report.
•Data analytics and visualization using Oracle ML.
•Oracle Cloud Infrastructure terminology.
•Compute Engine – creation of Oracle Linux instance on VM (Virtual machine) and access.
•Step by Step demonstration of creation of Linux instance and accessing it from Remote via putty.
•Computer Engine – Enabling the Oracle LINUX GUI and accessing through VNC.
•Installation and access -Jupyter Notebook on cloud Oracle Linux (VM) & access.
•SODA for Python – Using python to access the Autonomous DB table data
Learn about Oracle Cloud Infrastrucute (OCI) and Zoom up your career opportunities..
