Not to sound too much like a "me too" but, I also applaud Sarah's article and all of the people who take the time to answer the questions, and help guide all of us to be the best DBA's (accidental or otherwise) that we can be.

Having communities like SSC and PASS make such a huge difference.

I would also like to point out that what makes the Masters just that is their willingness to not only pass on the lessons learned from their own experience, but their desire to continue to learn more and then pass that knowledge on.

Thank you all for your enthusiasm and support!

John

Nice first article Sarah (at least here on SSC). If you have others, please let us know where to find them.

Like Grant and Brent, I agree that there has been more time to fiddle with and/or break things. Let's call it experience for good measure (mostly because Grant is older than me and I don't think I am old yet).

Sarah - you must introduce yourself to these people (and all of us at SQL events) of whom you speak. I know every one of them personally, great friends, ordinary people, I know stuff they don't know (I think :-) ), they know stuff I don't know. Even though I only seem them a couple times a year, it's all about #SQLFamily. A great group that has a great time when we all get together. Alan White put it best at a recent SQL Saturday when he said everyone has something to contribute. Don't be shy.

Great post, by the way. I, too, dabbled in Java until the SQL databases needed attention. I was hooked at that point as well.

Have some more. :-D

One thing I've noticed in 99.999% of the SQL people I meet @ Bits/Saturdays/Relays/SQLFAQ/etc is how approachable they are and how humble they are, you can ask them any question and they ALWAYS come up with an answer. They are genuinely nice people. (Sorry if that sounds condescending or schmaltzy).

I think that comes from all of us who work with SQL know we don't and can't know it all. I know the core of SQL and can setup just about any version without thinking abut it. I can also do programming in T-SQL and debug it as well. But I also know that I haven't used every keyword of T-SQL. My new job has some pre-done scripts we use. The one script uses UNPIVOT. I had never seen it before now.

I've barely touched SSIS and don't know SSRS at all. So as soon as you feel high & mighty and all knowing. Go to one of those gatherings and you will not retain that feeling long.
