My editorial about Running as Sysadmin ran in the SQLServerCentral newsletter yesterday and generated some good (and passionate!) responses. It’s not a simple topic. Not easy to fix up front or after it’s broken. I think there is work we DBA’s can do to show them simple patterns they can apply, as long as it’s more than ‘use stored procedures’ because as much as I like that plan, it doesn’t work for all teams.
