The demand for Oracle PL/SQL programmers
If you work with an Oracle database, you must have good PL/SQL programming skills. Furthermore, because Java is part of Oracle, most of the Oracle software development projects involve PL/SQL database programming tasks. Many Microsoft .NET and other application developers who use Oracle database as the backend repository must be proficient in programming with the Oracle PL/SQL language.
As per the Tiobe programming index, the Oracle PL/SQL language is among the top 20 most popular programming languages in computer science.
