I have been a database administrator for over 15 years, and from the start I have been working on multiple database technologies. My original database platform was Oracle, and SQL Server soon after. Several years ago I decided to go for a change and focus on MySQL, and in my current role, I’m managing MySQL, SQL Server & some MongoDB databases. I chose polyglot DBA as polyglot is defined as knowing or using several languages, each of these databases has its own unique features that need to be understood.
As I continue to work with & learn new features of these technologies, I wanted a place to track my thoughts & notes. There are a lot of great blogs that I follow, but sometimes I find that I need more information – are there prerequisites that are missing? Do I need more detail on why something is done a certain way?
