Wanting to become a DBA but not sure where to start...
I'm wanting to enter the DBA world but I really have no idea where to get started. I was hoping that someone on here could point me in the right direction for an Oracle newbie.
I've worked in the field of Geographic Information Systems for 8-years now and we are very database-driven. All of our map features are attached to a "geodatabase" that is powered by Oracle. I've lately become more interested in the technical side of the field, creating programs and scripts, messing with the databases, etc. I would like to go fully into database administration for the SDE:
As for gaining experience in database administration, I'm hoping to get a Master's in CIS as well as some real-world experience. I may also go the certification route if that will be helpful.
The problem is that I have no idea where to even begin. I need to find a good way to introduce myself to databases in general, then I need to specialize in Oracle.
If anyone can give me some info to get started, I would truly appreciate it!
GIS is beginning to get a lot of attention lately and will continue to grow in popularity. And sure as for getting started . go to http://otn.oracle.com and start gazing around.
