Getting back to this post, if you know how to think and how to write good T-SQL (accurate, performant, well documented with comments, and well formatted for readability), I'm pretty sure that you don't have to worry about ChatGTP taking your job. 😉 I'm also pretty sure that it's not going to help you look good at your job.
Hmm.... can it be used to explain politely but assertively to end users why their idiot idea is stupid and won't work?
I've given up on trying to do such things. I try to explain once and then I quit because "A person forced against their will, is of the same opinion still).
Instead, I've learned that the only way they learn is if they suffer by their own hand. To wit, I am now in the mode of "Giving people the opportunity to fail". That is not the same as "Setting someone up for failure". I lay no booby-traps unless you consider me doing it exactly the way they've asked a booby-trap.
I don't even tell them "I told you so" or "Are you ready to listen now"? Instead, I calmly say "Let's try it this way", which is almost always the way I suggested it. Of course, I also try to help the company bu frequently having what I believe is "the right way" done and ready to be tested.
Then, I calmly walk outside... and chop a tree down.... with my bare hands. 😀
The bad part is, I'm running out of trees that needed to be chopped down. 😀
p.s. The good part is that it usually only takes one occurrence for any given individual. The really good part is that the word spreads when coworkers have lunch together, etc. I might not run out of trees after all. 😀
