finds joy in minutiae..
Yes, my friend, don’t we all.
The topic at hand is fairly non-technical, but still important: folks who have made a positive contribution to your career or professional development. So it’s time for a shout-out! About a year ago, I wrote about my first major career move. There were several great influences in my first job, from the developers that taught me how to code, to the DBA who taught me how to keep cool & calm in the face of outages, to the boss who taught me the importance of time management and breadth of knowledge.
Since I am way too late in posting this, and I don’t feel like waxing poetic, I’ll just say a general “thank you” to all those who’ve helped me along in my career so far, with special acknowledgement to my former boss, my current boss, the SQL family, and my own family. Happy belated Thanksgiving and have a safe & pleasant holiday season! I’ll have a real post again quite soon, diving back into the tech stuff.
