Learn Databases from Tico the Fairy!

It seems I’m not the only one who has thought to use cartoons to explain databases to others. On Amazon, you can now pre-order The Manga Guide to Databases, a graphic novel about database technology.

Follow Tico the Fairy as she teaches Princess Ruruna how to simply management of her nation with a well made database.

Why not? Google used a comic to sell their new Chrome browser, after all!

  1. >> a graphic novel

    A graphic novel with fairies? You make it sound so dirty!

    Fairies have been teaching DBA concepts for decades, I guess it’s time for a formal book on the subject.

    I pre-ordered my copy, we will soon see if Tico is a “Fairy Good DBA” . . . .

    I can think of a dozen off-color fairy jokes right now but I will refrain from indulging… But I am intrigued enough to order the book. If nothing else, it may subtly entice my daughter to read a DBA book and follow in her daddy’s footsteps in this profession.
