Accidental DBA

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

I just spoke with a DBA that needed some help and I was happy to help because I know that I was in his shoes not long ago. Now some of the questions that he had seem scary to hear but I was that guy not long ago and if others would not have helped me then I would have had a very rough time getting to where I am today. I do not think that I am a great DBA by any means but I think that I have come a long way and I for sure have a long way to go. But being able to help out someone that is in a position that I used to be in is pretty awesome. That is a reason that I love the SQL Server community, because, most of the other DBA’s that I have spoken to feel very similar. That is why they make themselves available to people like me, they enjoy helping out. And so do I.
