MariaDB question

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Greetings, everyone. I recently upgraded to Fedora 19 and found out about the implementation of MariaDB instead of MySQL. I was working on a project using MySQL with Netbeans before upgrading; and I don't mind trying/using MariaDB (Open Source!) but I know nothing about MariaDB! I already downloaded the driver to use it with netbeans but I don't know how to start MariaDB. I need to create a user and all o' that to make test on netbeans.
