I know that to manage databases you need to know at least some basic programing language, right? Which is the most common and in demand now?<BR><BR>Thank you!
Oracle? Learn Java. SQL Server? Learn VB.NET, or C#. If you really want to make yourself useful, learn C++.
SQL, but the specific syntax will very with the database software, there are some substanial differences between oracle SQL and SQL Server SQL.
But for a DBA...Wouldn't SQL be a given? I guess not.
