I just registered and I wanted to say hello to anyone reading this.
(Sorry for the brief, but obligatory "about me") I have about several years (~5yrs) experience with DB backup and recovery (primarily with DB2, SQL Server, Lotus Domino, and some with Exchange & Oracle), but little experience with DB administration or design. But, I'm starting the process to change that by self-teaching and by signing up here to learn from the real world experience here.
In case anyone is actually reading this...
Do you have any suggestions on good books (whether it be on theory, administration or design) that you recommend starting with?
Are there any specific posts for beginners that you recommend?
I'm looking forward to learning from you (and eventually, teaching someone like me in the future),
