I am happy to be here. I am a network admin that is Msoft certified. However I am very frustrated in the field that has become completley flooded. I am considering changing my focus to DB's, however I am a complete newb in this field. Can someone please suggest where to begin my research?
What I might use to determine if this is for me?
What books are good for the green beginner?
Oracle vs Msoft (not trying to start an arguement)?
Anything really to get some information that I can really use, rather than fumbling around on the net, not knowing what I am getting. Also there are no classes being offered in my area by any schools. Any help would be fantastic and thanks for reading.
Finally, a very good pg resource is the book, PostgreSQL, 2nd edition, by Douglas & Douglas.
