SQL Server, Oh How I Love Thee!
Oh SQL Server How I Love Thee, Let Me Count The Ways!
Over the years I’ve had commitment issues with SQL Server as I was a Progress RDBMS Consultant as well as being a developer and a systems administrator. In the past, SQL Server was just one of my many duties and essentially I was an accidental DBA. However, I did consider myself a Progress DBA for the five years that I specialized in Progress 4GL. But during that time, I still administered SQL Server 6.5 and 7 databases, I just didn’t feel that it would be where my career path would go. I fancied myself a database developer who could also administer servers and perform other duties as assigned. That was my life calling, or so I thought.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve grown to love SQL Server more and more so much so that during the last year I proposed to SQL Server committing myself totally. Obviously, I still have numerous other administrative duties with my windows servers, SharePoint servers, OpenText ECM servers and VMWare infrastructure, however I have dedicated myself to the SQL Server community and my career to being the best SQL Server DBA that I can be. Are you willing to commit to SQL Server?
