Notes: Questions and Topics

Happy Birthday, Happy Graduation Day

First up, we wished Tracy Boggiano a happy birthday, as one does. After that, Mala announced that she’s graduating from a Master’s program in a couple of weeks, so we wished her an early happy graduation day.

T-SQL Tuesday

I gave a sneak preview of this month’s T-SQL Tuesday, which I am hosting. The theme is, what is your favorite job interview question? I talked at some length about questions as the interviewee or candidate, because asking good questions is something a lot of candidates don’t think to do. You’re interviewing the company just as much as the company is interviewing you, after all.

Azure SQL Database Copilot

Mala brought up for discussion an article about the private preview for Azure SQL Database Copilot. Anders mentioned that his company is in the private preview and he was pretty happy with how it worked.

The Unfortunately-Named SUQL

Mala also shared a link to this article on the Structured and Unstructured Query Language, otherwise known as SUQL. I had far too much fun mocking the acronym. As an idea? I dunno, maybe it’ll work out great. But as a name? No, no, no, please talk to the marketing department first.

Anders Has a Song

Anders used Suno to generate a song for the DBA, lyrics, chords, and all. You can and should enjoy it for what it is.
