The MariaDB-specific book, MariaDB Crash Course, by Ben Forta, is an
excellent way to learn more about MariaDB. This book - for beginner to
intermediate level users - will get you up and running with MariaDB,
even if you've never used a database before. More information is
available at: http://forta.com/books/0321799941/


- - User Feedback plugin - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

MariaDB includes a User Feedback plugin. This plugin is disabled by
default. If enabled, it submits basic, completely anonymous MariaDB
usage information. This information is used by the developers to track
trends in MariaDB usage to better guide development efforts.

If you would like to help make MariaDB better, please add
"plugin-load=feedback.so" to your my.cnf file! On Windows, add
"feedback=ON" to your my.ini file, or click the checkbox during the
installation of the MSI package.

See http://kb.askmonty.org/en/user-feedback-plugin for more information.
