Han SQL’s First Post
Hi there. I’m Wil Sisney, a SQL Server Database Administrator from Phoenix, AZ, USA. My screen name is Han SQL. I’ve been working with SQL Server in some capacity for 9 years, and I’ve been a senior DBA for 5 years. I am a Microsoft Certified Professional, and hold the following certifications:
Microsoft Certified IT Professional: Database Administrator 2008; Microsoft Certified IT Professional: Database Developer 2008; Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: SQL Server 2008, Implementation and Maintenance; Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: SQL Server 2008, Database Development. I also happen to be a Certified Pharmacy Technician (CphT).
Like many DBA’s, I am mostly self-taught. It has been a long road of constant daily study, and I figure it is about time to start sharing some of my favorite resources, scripts and concepts so that new DBA’s visiting my blog have a list of resources to use. I also want to talk about the business of being a DBA. Many resources focus on solving technical issues related to our databases, but not very many teach you how to be successful at being a DBA inside a living breathing company that relies on you.
When it comes to SQL Server, I like to help others, so run your question by me. I promise not to pretend I know every answer, but I will be happy to give every question some thought and help if I can.
So this blog might not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts.
