Protips, please!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey, I've been programming for a few years, throughout high school, and I've decided to continue on in my learning. Right now, I've started an into class in college (XNA/Alice programming) and I'm having quite a bit of fun. However, later on in life, I'm looking for become something along the lines of a DBA. Anyone have any suggestions to languages I should look at? I have a background in VBasic, Java, C++, and a little MySQL.

If you're aiming to be a DBA, then I suggest you keep learning MySQL. Practice with both SQL and MS Access DBs. Also, you might want to learn PHP and/or ASP in case you end up managing a web server.

If you want to be a DBA, become very familiar with one of the following:
MySQL, MSSQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL
