MySQL as an Oracle DBA

June 3, 2015

A quick question, which I’ve asked once before –

if you were an Oracle DBA, then learned MySQL, what do you wish you knew before you got started?

Also, what was helpful to you as you learned?  (Websites, #mysql on irc, documents, etc.)  What do you wish you had (or want to have now) if you are a DBA for both Oracle databases and MySQL databases?

Ie, what would be good to give an Oracle DBA who wants to start learning or supporting MySQL as well?  Please respond with comments here, or directly email me at ben-dot-krug-at-oracle-dot-com.
