Steps to learn Vertica
I am planning to learn Vertica. Since I am completely new to this area, need steps / direction to learn it. Some background about myself -
I have few years of experience in Oracle pl/sql scripting + application development knowledge in APEX. However, I don't have any knowledge in Big data.
Reason for my learning is to involve in a project in the area of Vertica, especially related to database and generating reports (or scripting).
Please let me know steps needed to learn the same. I assume -
- read vertica fundamentals (doc??)
- understand it's database concepts? Probably it is much different w.r.t. Oracle DB?
- sql scripting. Also need to know how it is different from Oracle pl/sql ?
- Setup a local copy of Vertican in my system (VM or something?)
- and so on....
Also please share any links which helps in doing this.
And, yes, my requirement is to get hold of this within a weeks time !
