    Comments about oreilly Getting Started with MariaDB:

    I have been working with MySQL since 2003. I have seen many many books on MySQL and its, unfortunately, many forks. This book does a great job of covering the basics from how to install through security and user administration to some SQL basics and how to keep the server running and backed up. This is not a manual and if I were to have written it I would probably have put some of the chapters in a different order but its a great tutorial. I was especially pleased with the sections on security and user administration. The author spends some time in each chapter not only showing you how to do stuff but also explaining why you should be doing it. This is often left out of other tutorial books I have read.

    Comments about oreilly Getting Started with MariaDB:

    Having never used any database program before, I needed some basic facts to get started - obviously as a hobbyist at this point. This book got me set up with MariaDB (installing, configuring, securing etc) as well as introducing the most basic methods of interacting with databases and tables. With lots of links to online sources for further details, it was perfect to start with.
