Fireproof Your DBA Career in our Next Twitter Chat!

by Jul 14, 2017

Is your DBA career fireproof? Let’s discuss the things that can get you fired and make sure you’re not doing them.

Our next #SQLChat will take place on Wednesday, August 23rd at 11 AM CT with Robert Davis (@SQLSoldier).

There are things that many DBAs do (or fail to do) for which they can and should be fired. This #SQLChat will help you fireproof your job security and make you a master at making sure your own backside is covered in the event something disastrous happens. These are basic, fundamental skills all DBAs should know, but surprisingly, many do not.

The scary part is, you may already be doing some of these things and not even know it. Many people are. Find out now if your job is at risk!

This #SQLChat will allow members from the SQL community to discuss SQL Server’s biggest topics with IDERA product experts, and have a chance to win this month’s giveaway prize,. This month’s giveaway prize is a giant Jenga set!
