Friday Reading 2018-07-20

Haven’t posted one of these for a while! It’s good to have some time back to be able to read/write.

I’ve had a pretty mixed week, but the highlight has definitely been pulling the trigger on buying a Dell XPS 13 running Ubuntu. The Dell is a pretty slick machine, I’ve seen a few people at events with them and I’ve always been really envious so I finally went and bought myself one ??

Will write a post about how I get on with it after a couple of weeks. Anyway, this week 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
