What is T-SQL Tuesday?
T-SQL Tuesday is a monthly blog party hosted by a different blogger each month. This blog party was started by Adam Machanic (blog|twitter). You can take part by posting your own participating post that fits the topic of the month and follows the requirements below. Additionally, if you are interested in hosting a future T-SQL Tuesday, contact Adam Machanic on his blog.
This month’s topic
In the roughly 25 years of I have been in IT, we're still dealing with the same problems.
— Allan Hirt (@SQLHA) August 30, 2016
I proceeded to flood Twitter with a bunch of things that IT has been messing up for years. At the end of my tweetstorm, I realized it would be a wonderful topic of T-SQL Tuesday.
Of course, because this is T-SQL Tuesday, let’s put a database-centric spin on Allan’s original tweet. For this month’s topic, I offer two fill-in-the-blank topics:
- In the <N> years I have been a database professional, we’re still dealing with <some problem>
- In the <N> years I have been using SQL Server, we’re still dealing with <some problem>
Whatever your problem, this month is a chance to give your stump speech, and raise some awareness about it. Perhaps we can even make some progress in fixing some of these problems.
Some inspiration: Vectors for attacking this topic
There are plenty of problems that aren’t specific to database professionals–should we be leading the charge to fix these problems? Everyone has stories from the hiring process. Everyone dreads paperwork.
(Just try to avoid kvetching too much. Remember to talk about how to solve the problem.)
