So how did I end up a SQL Server DBA? Well, it’s a long story that I’ll try to make short. I started out by getting a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education and then I learned that working with children was probably not a strength. I struggled for awhile and thought I’d like to get into IT, and I thought I’d enjoy network and system administration, but, through a good friend I got a job as a software developer working with Access, Visual Basic, SQL Server, Sybase, and DB2 400. As I worked with each of the technologies I found that I had an aptitude for SQL Server and here I am 10 years later, looking for ways to share the things I’ve learned and finding that the more I know, the more I need to learn.
So how did you become involved with SQL Server?
