I am happy to announce that the first MariaDB book is released!
The book is called MariaDB Crash Course and is written by Ben Forta, who also wrote the MySQL Crash Course book.
Quoting the book description:
"This book will teach you all you need to know to be immediately productive with MySQL. By working through 30 highly focused hands-on lessons, your MySQL Crash Course will be both easier and more effective than you'd have thought possible"
This is great news for new users to SQL and to MariaDB as it makes it easier for them to get things going quickly!
You can find a link to this book and other recommended MariaDB / MySQL books here.
