This month for TSQL Tuesday I’d like to hear about your first technical job(s). I know most DBAs don’t start out working with databases so tell us how you did start. I’m generally thinking of your first tech job, but if you had a job early in your career that wasn’t technical at all but still makes for a good story feel free to share! I can’t wait to hear about it.
Note: I got the date and the number of the TSQL Tuesday wrong. Both have been updated 🙂
What is T-SQL Tuesday
T-SQL Tuesday is a blog party started by Adam Machanic (b/t) over a decade ago and now maintained by Steve Jones (blog|twitter) on tsqltuesday.com. The first Tuesday of each month a blogger hosts the party and suggests a topic. Then anyone who is interested blogs on that topic. It can be a lot of fun and quite a challenge to blog on a topic you didn’t pick. Not to mention the time limit. I didn’t mention the time limit? Oh, well, you have one week to write your blog and then it has to be posted on the second Tuesday of the month.
How to join the party
- Your post must be published on Tuesday
March 08May 10, 2022. (oops, schedule was changed and I missed this bit 😁) Don’t be late!
- Your post must contain the T-SQL Tuesday logo (see above) and the image must link back to this blog post. Otherwise, how will we know it’s a T-SQL Tuesday post?
- Trackbacks should work, but if not please put a link to your post in the comments section so everyone can see your contribution!
- If you are on twitter include the hash tag #tsql2sday (I always forget) to show off your post loud and proud.
How do I host?
If you want to host just contact Steve Jones (blog|twitter) and ask for a spot. I believe there is a requirement that you have to have participated in T-SQL Tuesday at least a few times, but hey that’s only reasonable right?
