Similar to how I started 15 years ago in SQL Server, I am now being thrown into supporting MySQL with very little technical experience. At the moment I support MySQL purely as a DBA - poorly in my opinion - and am starting to get more and more requests to do so.
Managing MySQL from an Enterprise perspective. Performance Tuning MySQL. I'm intrigued by the pervasiveness of the product and how much there is for me learn about it. It's like learning to race NASCAR when you've been racing IndyCar. Both are exciting and capable, but both come with their own challenges and nuances that must be mastered.
