Thank you to Koen Verbeeck for hosting this month’s T-SQL Tuesday. The topic for this month is the role of the DBA in a cloud based world. Will there be less jobs in the future for the traditional DBA? As with most questions in the data world… It depends. We currently live in the age of disruption where you must adapt to change or fade away. That has always been true in the technology world. I am sure there are still Cobal and Fortran developers out there, but would I base my career on those languages? That is why it is always important to future proof your career. One way to build the skills needed to compete in this cloud first, mobile first world is to get Microsoft Certified on SQL Server. Microsoft has recently streamlined their certifications and have geared many of them towards Azure based technologies. The 70-765 and 70-473 exams are specifically geared towards working with SQL in Azure. I have spoken at several user groups and SQL Saturdays on how to get SQL Server certified, but if you would like to see an overview click here. Feel free to contact me with any questions and I will be happy to guide you on the path that is right for you.
It is time for T-SQL Tuesday #85 and this month the party is being hosted by Kenneth Fisher from SQL Studies.This month’s topic is Backup and Restore and I will be discussing the differences between database Restore and Recovery.Click here to read more.
40 bloggers (including myself) joined in for the November T-SQL Tuesday blog party. Whether you are a New Speaker, Novice Speaker, or Experienced Speaker, I’m sure you will find some great tips and trick for your next presentation.
I can’t believe it, I am finally joining the T-SQL Tuesday blog post party started by Adam Machanic (b|t). This month Andy Yun is our TSQL2sDay #84 host who has selected the subject of “Growing New Speakers”. Specifically, to talk about preparing, presenting, and speaking at local user groups, virtual PASS chapter, SQL Saturdays and/or the PASS Summit. As a Microsoft Certified Trainer(MCT), this topic really hits home. Click here to read more.
