Randolph West - Database administration through the ages

Abstract:
You're a lone DBA and you've heard all the buzzwords about Linux and Azure and containers, and it's all a bit overwhelming. Are you really missing out?

Join me on an exploration of what it means to be a DBA in the modern era, and how your existing skills can be leveraged, no matter the platform. Maintenance plans, monitoring, even disaster recovery all work in pretty much the same way across Windows, Linux, Azure SQL DB, and containers.

Then when you go back to work on Monday, you will have a starting point on how to modernize your existing environment and future-proof your career.

About Randolph:
Randolph West (they/them) is an actor, author, and Microsoft Data Platform MVP, and has worked with SQL Server since the late 1990s. When not consulting, you can see them acting on the stage and screen, or doing voices for independent video games. Randolph is available for mentoring, and talks on SQL Server and technology in general. Do not trust Randolph around chocolate.
