I issued some of my colleagues a challenge this morning.In the vein of the ‘Become a better developer in 6 months’ idea that was going around the net a few months back, I asked them what they were going to do in what’s left of this year to become better DBAs.
Following the idea of ‘make something public and you’ll go through with it’ idea, here are my intentions for the remainder of the year:
- Finish 2 database books by the end of the year. The two I’m looking at are ‘Guru’s guide to SQL architecture and internals’ and ‘Practical troubleshooting’, The first is written by Ken Henderson, the second is edited by him
- Write at least 1 blog post a week here. This is the one I’m most likely to have trouble with.
- Listen to at least 1 SQL related podcast a week. I’m open to suggestions for good SQL-related podcasts.
