“Do You Want to Pursue a Career as a SQL Server DBA?” Sorry, listening to the audio on this website requires Flash support in your browser. You can try playing the MP3 file directly by clicking here. Back in 2011, I have had the opportunity to do an interview with the folks from Talk TechNet. Keith Combs (Twitter | blog) and Matt Hester (Twitter | blog) were very kind to have me on the show. The main topic of our discussion is focused on how to become a SQL Server DBA. I shared my story on how I became a SQL Server DBA, how to get started when you don’t have a clue about what being a SQL Server DBA is, and some of the tools to get you started. Being a SQL Server DBA is a great career to pursue, especially in this day and age of massive accumulation and management of data. Whether you’re considering to pursue a career as a SQL Server DBA or are being forced to be one, tune in to the conversation to help you get started.
