What do I do?
I am currently a SQL Server DBA for one of the top ten accounting and consulting firms in the United States. I spend my days, and nights 🙂 , protecting data and ensuring applications/systems are available to our user community.
SQL Server Experience
I’ve been an evolving DBA for the past five years. It began with limited exposure to SQL 6 and SQL 7, and has continued with much more extensive interaction with SQL Server 2000 (MCP), SQL Server 2005 (MCTS), SSIS, and Reporting Services. The majority of our systems today are running 64Bit SQL 2008 R2. We are now setting our sights on SQL Server 2012.
Why the Blog?
Personal and Professional Accountability. I owe it to myself to document my experiences and share them with others where appropriate. If anyone else in the community benefits from them it’s a bonus. I consider myself a mid-level DBA with higher aspirations. This blog is getting me out of my comfort zone, improving communication and organizational skills, and helping to establish a technical network.
