Is the ticket via mail? Could schedule an email to be sent everyday before get to work so when get there they maybe already sent you the files
Also I don't really care when they get back to me.
When I hit send, the ball is in their court.
Your move monkeys!
I never like DBA, or anything associated with that title.
They're just dicks. Correct you if you think I'm wrong.
@lwhken depends on the company. If they hire monkeys... yea...
Large tech companies.... doubt it.
@lwhken I've moved suspiciously close to the role, from backend development.
I've become a bit of a dick, but only because all my coworkers write migrations without thinking about DB design, indexes, or foreign key constraints.
@bittersweet the reason I hate DBA is because they do the following to me
1. gave them script to run because only DBA is worthy enough to touch the DB
2. script fails because of some minor issue (e.g. duplicate key violation, because I didn't know the row already exists due to no access to DB)
3. DBA freaks out, says "it doesn't work", copy & paste the error log and sends back AT THE END OF THE DAY
4. I fix the error but have to wait for another day because the DBA does it *on purpose (highly opinionated statement here)
5. go back to 1.
@lwhken Yeah our DB is dumped, masked (anonimized), and anyone in the company can use it. Apps like metabase and periscopedata make it easy for even non techies at sales to run and adjust queries themselves.
