I am presently an MCSE working on a international Windows NT contract.
I am very interested in becoming an Oracle DBA and I was wondering
where should I start. I have recently bought a few Oracle books from
Oracle Press (Oracle: A Beginner's Guide, and an Oracle PL/SQL intro
book) and have really dived into them. I am also going to buy Oracle
Personal Server to load on my PC at home so i can work through the
examples. I would love to take the Oracle classes, but time does not
permit me to do that right now.
How can I get my foot in the door? And where do I start? I am willing
to start at the very bottom as I would love to find someone who
wouldn't mind working with me/letting me help out with Oracle
databases on the weekend. I am willing to help out for free so I can
get some first hand experience (I live in Pittsburgh).
I would appreciate any advice, help, etc., that anyone could give.
Just looking to get my foot in the door and work my way up. As I said
I am willing to even help for free as I need a starting base of
