MariaDB is a database server that offers drop-in replacement functionality for MySQL. Built by some of the original authors of MySQL, with assistance from the broader community of free and open source software developers, MariaDB offers a rich set of feature enhancements to MySQL, including alternate storage engines, server optimizations, and patches.


MariaDB Crash Course teaches you all you need to know to be immediately productive with MariaDB. Master trainer Ben Forta introduces all the essentials through a series of quick, easy-to-follow, hands-on lessons. Instead of belaboring database theory and relational design, Forta focuses on teaching solutions for the majority of users who simply want to interact with data.


Learn how to:

  • Retrieve and sort data
  • Filter data using comparisons, regular expressions, and full text search
  • Join relational data
  • Create and alter tables
  • Insert, update, and delete data
  • Leverage the power of stored procedures and triggers
  • Use views and cursors
  • Manage transactional processing
  • Create user accounts and manage security via access control

5.0 out of 5 stars Databases- The last bastion of really confusing technology -Not Anymore Nov. 20 2011
By Scott L. Wolpow - Published on
I have notices a trend in tech books. They are being written in conversational English.
Ben Forte is a great instructor.
MariaDB is the successor to MySql and most conventions are similar to MySQL. That makes this book even more useful.
His teaching method works.
He defines a term. Shows its use, and then describes why it happened. The examples do not require that you go sequential order.

As your skills develop and you make your start as a Data Base Administrator, this is a great first step.

I wonder the style, though it's brief you will find all necessary info to kickstart working with MariaDB. Esp. if you have some basics of MySQL. The rest (thorough reference, details) you can find elsewhere.

If you know MySQL, then this book is not helpful at all. I hoped for discussions in particular on the various storage engines, and there was basically nothing. The book is nothing more than a basic reference.
