Day 1 for the conference is in the book. It was a great event with SQL Rockstar otherwise known as Thomas La Rock. We were getting a lot of questions and there was some great talk about if you as a DBA want to be Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now. I can’t go through and type his whole session, but here is the break down…
Mr. Right – This is the guy who is right all the time. He is known for being right and may not be known for the best customer service. You may have met this guy in the past. See the thing about Mr. Right is that he plans there may not be a lot of quick fixes. Mr. Right is confidant and does things the right way.
Mr. Right Now – Always has a phone to his ear and is spending most of his time working manual workaround issues. Mr. Right Now is very well like and is everyone’s best friend. He would be a big hit at all the parties, however he is working to make sure that everyone else’s mistakes have been corrected or should we say band-aided.
Maybe the descriptions are a bit drastic. But really is the mindset of proactive or reactive. Awesome discussion Mr. Rockstar, what a way to start our first all live all day all room confernce. It was a pleasure to meet you. I hope to work with you in the future.
In the morning we have Ted Malone, I am sure he is going to have some great information to pass along as well.
