As part of my MySQLCamp for the Oracle DBA series of talks to help the Oracle DBA understand, use and appreciate MySQL I have also developed a series of short interesting posts I have termed “Don’t Assume”. Many of these are re-occurring points during my consulting experiences as I observe Oracle DBA’s using MySQL. I am putting the finishing touches to my MySQL for the Oracle DBA series of talks and I’m excited to highlight some of the subtle differences and unique characteristics of MySQL RDBMS in comparison to Oracle and some extent other products including SQL Server.
Stay tuned for more soon.
I will be presenting at the MySQL Users Conference 2010 in Santa Clara, April 2010 two presentations from this series, IGNITION and LIFTOFF. This series also includes JUMPSTART and VELOCITY.
