First Question to Ask

people-skills

When you are asked to take a look at a database, either because a friend needs help or you have been paid to take a look at a database by a new employer, the first question you should ask is “Is this database in production?” There are several questions that you will want to ask next, but always start with this question. You don’t want to be making changes, or even just poking around, in a database that is in production. It also sends a strong message to your friend or employer that you don’t want to impact their production (i.e. “money making”) environment and put them or their company at risk.
