July Question: Tell us your story of how you happened to become a DBA.

Post your responses to the above SQL Aloha Question of the Month in the comments section below (at www.bradmcgehee.com if you are viewing this from a syndicated newsfeed). And don’t forget to enter your e-mail address when you post your response, so I can contact you if you win.

This month, because of the nature of the question, which has no right or wrong answer, the winner will be selected randomly from all the entries that are received. I have talked to many DBAs over the years, and nobody I have talked to started out their career wanting to be a DBA. They all seemed to have started one career, and then eventually moved into the role as a DBA (part-time or full-time). If you are not a DBA, but would like to be a DBA, you can still enter. Instead of telling us your story of how you became a DBA, tell us why you want to become a DBA.

For more information, click on the Question of the Month tab above.

This Month’s Prizes

The prizes this month are an Amazon.com voucher worth US$50.00 and a license for Red Gate’s monitoring and alerting tool, SQL Response, with one year of support and upgrades worth US$619.00. Not familiar with SQL Response?

Here’s what one customer has to say:”SQL Response enables you to monitor, get alerted and respond to SQL problems before they start, in an easy-to-navigate, user-friendly and visually precise way, with drill-down detail where you need it most.John B Manderson
