Welcome to my first blog post! I am starting this blog with the idea to share my experience and knowledge as a DBA who is still at the beginning of their career. And what a better way to start this journey than introducing myself.
Originally from Bulgaria I was born and raised in a small town in the centre of the country- Kazanlak (Definitely recommend adding to your list of destinations to visit). Since I remember myself I have always been interested in mathematics and physics and in 2015 that brought me to the UK to study mathematics. Three years later I graduated from University of Southampton with Bachelors of Science and started my career journey being analyst on a graduate programme for a wealth management company in Southampton. Then in 2019 I had the opportunity to join the DBA team in the same company and accidentally I become DBA. Back then I had no experience and limited knowledge but was lucky to join an incredible team with people who share their knowledge and have been supporting my development- people who inspire me to even start blogging.
You may wonder what to expect from this blog? As 2021 is just around the corner, one of the things on my resolution list is to undertake Microsoft DP-900 exam at the beggining of the year and I am planning to share more on how I am preparing for it, i am also planning to share what is the best way to get started with SQL, SSMS and PowerShell based on my experience and some of the tips and tricks I have found useful. Blog #2 coming soon.
