Simple, follow your passion... and the money. Do what you love AND will get paid for.

As the others have stated, do which you like the best. As an option, there's nothing wrong with doing both. ;-)

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.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

Certifications is a whole different discussion.

You're early enough in your career that it might help some. Maybe.

I'm honestly the wrong person to talk to. I don't trust most certifications.

Certification will definitely get you more money but beware that expectations will also be high on job from a certified professional. If you don't cope up with those, you are gone. So no rush for certification. Stick to DBA. Enhance your skillsets.You will never die hungry. I'll suggest you to get specialized in DBA area because here you will not have fear of getting outdated. Basics always remain same.

Not necessarily.

As of last night, there are now 0 certifications that one can take that I will immediately respect. MCITP/MCTS/MCSA/MCSE tell me that either a person is interested in learning more, that they were required by their company to take the exams and did the absolute bare minimum memorisation or that they're a cheat, which it is I have to find in the interview.

Exactly so. All an MS Certification (other than MCS or MC[S]M, which no longer exist) tells me is that the person has, for some reason, taken the exam and is capable of retaining some stuff in memory for at least a few weeks. Whether they have actually learnt how to do anything useful, rather than just parrot some information , whether they will retain any of the information you learnt for long enough for it to be useful to me or forget it all within a fortnight of taking the exam, and whether they understood what the stuff they learnt means or just parroted it in the exam with no real understanding, is not something that the certification gives any indication of. It's even less reliable than a bachelor's degree from most universities in that respect (and that's a very high degree of unreliability).
From people looking for a first technical post what I want to see is evidence of ability and willingness to learn; currently available levels of MS certification provides evidence of willingness to undertake a crammer course and pass an exam while the cramming is fresh, not of real learning ability, and someone with MC[S]M (especially with MCA as well) is not going to be looking for an entry level post. For more senior people, I'm looking for track record - verifiable track record, preferably vouched for by people I know I can trust, but regard having recently been certified MC[S]M as pretty solid evidence of competence and pretty deep understanding of the MS technology concerned and MCA as strengthening that evidence. The lower level qualifications are irrelevant. So it's a pity that the useful certs have been dropped.
