DBA day 2019

DBA day 2019

Has been a long time since I wrote on my blog. The paths that life decides for you are strange. Often what you planned is completely scrambled by something bigger and completely unforeseen.

Back in 2018 I planned to relocate to France but the move went quite wrong for reasons that only now I can see clearly.

Anyway, finally after 10 months wandering without a real home I’m finally settled down somewhere.

Then this is is the perfect occasion to celebrate the second database administrators appreciation day.

Back in 2018 I launched the event because there were no day dedicated for this obscure and yet very important figure within the enterprises.

Therefore don’t forget 5th of July, it’s the day when you should say thank you to your DBA for all of the hard work.

DBA may cry

DBA may cry

Database administrators usually work behind the scenes, over the weekends and in antisocial hours. They strive to look after the database which is at the core of any business with little or no recognition.

The sad truth is that the DBA is one of the most obscure and one of the less appreciated roles within the IT organisations.
