Hi Brian, this is Nagarjuna Reddy from Hyderabad, India, working as a DBA trainee at SURAV Infosoft. Here there is no training for me, so I have to learn on my own. Can you please give me suggestions on how to make a start as a DBA? I am aware of database concepts and SQL queries. Now I am just planning to join in a training institute locally. I appreciate your guidance.
Every once in a while, I get this question from various DBAs at various levels. I have written a white paper titled "Grow That DBA Career," which can be found on
my Web site
. Please download that paper and give it a read. It will provide more information than I could duplicate in this forum.
