To DBA or Not to DBA…

By Jason Brimhall, 2013/10/31

In my day to day operations I have the opportunity to work with people in various capacities in regards to data.  Sometimes it is in the capacity of a mentor, sometimes in the capacity of a consultant, and sometimes just in the capacity of the dude that fixes the problem.

I enjoy working as a database professional.  There may be times when I want to scream or yell or pull out my teeth and hair.  Then there are times when I just bounce off the walls with joy and pleasure.  Some may call that a manic-depressive disorder.  They just don’t understand the true life of a data professional.

Reminiscing

In becoming a data professional, I took the long route to get where I am.  I made the decision to work with SQL and learn about SQL 17 years ago.  I made the decision to learn about SQL because I viewed it as a really difficult thing to learn.  I wanted that challenge.  Then again, back then I also enjoyed the challenge of learning to configure Cisco routers.
