One of the neat benefits of putting the podcast together is talking to a wide spectrum of folks with varied backgrounds. As we get more feedback from listeners, the idea of the Lone DBA emerged. The Lone DBA is someone who is the only person responsible for database administration at their company. These tasks may have been assigned or they may have simply been required to help support an application. Steve and I thought we should explore this a bit and to help give us some context, we invited Monica Rathbun to chat with us about some of the challenges she’s faced.
Besides the challenges, Monica shares tactics and techniques to juggle many tasks while being a lone DBA. This includes using social media as a way of building connections with different experts, getting the right tools for the organization’s needs and making your boss your supporter. Have your own perspective on this? Let us know in the show notes for the episode.
