Piiiiiiiigs, er DBAs, in Space!

Puppetry Arts Center, Atlanta 14If you don't get the reference, it was a set of skits on the old Muppet Show and it starred these guys and Miss Piggy. It was always a riot, full of great puns, and one of my favorite skit sets of all time. However, Red Gate's latest announcement isn't about pigs, but about DBAs. I know, sometimes developers can't tell the difference between the two, but there is one, trust me.

Red Gate is offering a chance for a DBA to win a trip into space. It is contest and there is some work to do, but it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to definitely consider attempting.

So join Brad McGehee, Miss Friday, and Poppy (the dog pictured on the front page, though it doesn't get appropriate billing) in this contest that will ask you to:

  • Answer questions
  • Complete an application
  • Garner community support

You do need to administer databases as part of your active job and there are some residency requirements that you must meet in order to be eligible. You can find out that information at the About page.
