Resources for the New or Accidental DBA

Speakers: Thomas Strike, Stacy Hein

Duration: 60 minutes

Track: Database Administration

This no demo class will follow along the lines of an IT professional being handed the role of DBA. It will also be valuable for the would-be DBA. We'll go over some of the resources that I used to prepare myself for the DBA job I landed and how to take that next step. We’ll also go over the resources that we use to prepare for the various tasks we’ve needed to accomplish since taking on our various roles.

We’ll give a list of these resources including links, downloads, and in many cases how to get access to them for free even if they’re normally paid training sites.

Previously presented at SQL Saturdays in Iowa City and Sioux Falls, and scheduled in St. Louis this month.
