Three main areas of development:
1- Performance tuning.
2- Business continuity.
3- and the, again, more Performance tuning.

Have you ever setup for backups and 10 minute log backups and then actually done a restore to a point in time? Have you ever transferred a database from one server to another and made sure that all the privs were ok? Have you ever created privs for a "Windows Group" and created database roles that you've assigned membership to? Have you ever tried to delete a database user that owns objects?

If you haven't, those things would be the beginning of the next step. Too many people jump into things like performance tuning without learning the meat-and-potatos of being a DBA and they quickly earn a bad reputation because of it.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

You are right Jeff, can't argue about it - I assumed poster is already a decent DBA :-)
