Every now and then I’ll write a short blog post to promote an article that I think is worth reading. This is one of those posts…
Today’s article worth reading is titled The Seven Deadly Habits of a DBA …and how to cure them by Paul Vallee. This well-thought-out list of habits to avoid should be on every DBA’s reading list. It is well worth the short time it takes to read through it.
The article is not deeply technical, nor should it be. Although the article is written from an Oracle perspective, the guidance is broadly applicable to managing any DBMS environment. In the article, Vallee discusses seven tendencies that need to be overcome and offers cures for overcoming them… ’nuff said.
Click on over and read it while you’re still thinking about it: The Seven Deadly Habits of a DBA …and how to cure them.
