I am a database administration, and also, I am the database developer, and then asp.net, C#, Jquery, Java script, CSS, front end developer; and also C#, windows programmer, and then, Microsoft BI, office 2010, 2007 powerpivot user to do rapid prototype, business analysis.
I work on SQL server 2008, SQL server 2005, create a new database, back up, and then, set up agents to report web database server daily disk space, database size, auto growth etc.
One of things brings me most concern is to how to create an IT career for myself, what is my best strategy to learn, grow, and also enjoy the short career I may have.
From other end, I also try to improve data structure, algorithm skills, improve my work performance etc.
I could not believe what I could do as one person; but the task I worked on opened my eye and forced me think smart and work smart.
I want to use an example to end my comment, what kind of work involves for you to send out market team thousands of contact in Microsoft outlook address book an email without being treated as spam?
Spam is in the eye of the beholder and not something that your application can control. However, there are some things you might do in "signing up" new members to the mailing list.
First ask those who signup to put the sender you use on their approved sender list. This will allow your email to pass into the inbox w/o turning it into spam.
Second the user or sender name you use might be a tip to some spam engines. Email from senders with names like NoReply@mySite.org can be caught or suspected by some spam engines. Lastly you might read a little on how spam engines determine what is or is not spam and avoid those practices.
But for those engines that look at a piece of mail and see that it has gone to 25k sites and that username is not on the approved list, it will more often then not get sent to the spam folder.
