Friday Reading 2018-01-26

It’s moving weekend! Hopefully two hard days and then I’ll be all settled in my new place. Cannot wait.

Inbetween packing all my belongings into cardboard boxes, I’ve been reading…

The DBA Who Came In From The Cold

I’m Andrew Pruski and I am a SQL Server DBA with 5 years experience in database development and administration.

The online SQL Server community has helped me out immensely throughout my career, whether from providing reference material in blog posts, or answering my (sometimes obscure) questions on forums. So, to try and say thank you, I would like to contribute my own experiences in the hope that they could benefit someone out there.

So here’s my general ramblings and thoughts about working as a SQL Server DBA.

You can find me on twitter @DBAFromTheCold
