How Not to be a Cranky DBA: The Blog Series


August 8, 2012 by Mike Hillwig

I love having a presentation I can keep in my back pocket just in case I need to speak at an event. It’s served me well in both New York and Philly when other speakers cancelled and I offered to jump in.

It was at SQL Saturday in New York that I realized I didn’t have a dedicated blog post that I could refer back to. And that’s when I realized that this could be more than a single post.

What I plan on doing over the next few days is break this presentation into a series of blog posts so you can understand what makes me a cranky DBA and how you can prevent yourself from falling into some of the same situations.

    fail to win the attention of people. People can also find
    Pitt wearing DG sunglasses in many occasions too. Comfortable styles that bring to mind clothing popular in the 60s and 70s reflect Indian influences, targeted a slightly older marketing.
