Today I came back into the office after having a week off. It is always hard to come back into the office but it is nice to get back into the swing of things as well. When I arrived I found some new Sybase books sitting on my desk. Now I know that my company is not going to send me to another class right now in these rough economic times so it was a nice surprise to see the books. Unfortunately, they are the old books of a former employee here. None the less, I plan on reading the books and trying to do as many of the labs as I can. I will be posting in the future about what I am learning here. I have some ASE Performance and Tuning as well as Advanced Administration and Troubleshooting books. I am really looking forward to the Performance and Tuning guide as I would love to make our end users experience better. I will keep you posted on my progress.
