Ok, Heres the situation.
You've got a newby that is familiar with computers as far as working most hardware issues. He does well working with Windows and fixin a lot of stuff nobody else in the office can.
Now this guy is lookin for a new career, preferrably work with computer databases.
The problem is that I.....I mean this guy doesnt know ANYTHING about programming databases or even what an SQL or a GUI is. (with the exception of seeing the term all over websites)
The question. If you knew someone wanted to learn how to get into programming databases for a future job, what would you have him start out learning, or where would the best place to start be?
I know it's pretty vague, but I figured this would be the site to ask. And any ideas would be useful.
