The Jr DBA Workout Plan Erik Darling



Squat, deadlift, overhead press, and bench press. In the gym, it’s easy to figure out what you need to be doing to get stronger. When you show up to work, you’re overwhelmed by all the things happening on your server(s), and you can’t figure out where to begin. In this session, we’ll talk about building a strong knowledge foundation to help you powerlift your career, without having to clean and jerk or snatch and grab your way to the top. For free.

Erik Darling started using SQL Server after a dispute with Excel over a vlookup. Since then he’s been a developer at a market research company and a DBA for an eDiscovery shop. He enjoys arguing with the Optimizer and contributing to the First Responder Kit.

  2. This Video is EXACTLY what I needed…
    As a person that was recently made responsible for WAYYY more Databases then I think is healthy for one person (5k Plus totaling over 100TB).Don't get me wrong I am grateful for the opportunity and
    I need to keep in mind that I can't "realistically" do everything every day but rather have a plan of what I need to do each day when I am not putting out fires and making sure expectation matches as closely as possible what can actually be done.
    Thanks, a lot, Erik!
