If you haven’t been reading the SQL Server Central stairways topics, try this URL: https://www.sqlservercentral.com/stairways.
The SQL Server Central website is chock full of interesting SQL server articles, forum posts, scripts, books and blog posts. It is one of the go-to websites that I used during my SQL Server DBA career.
In their words: “Designed to smooth out even the steepest learning curve, each Stairway is a SQL tutorial series focused on a single topic and is arranged into no more than a dozen easily-navigable tutorials that we call ‘steps'”.
I was curious as to what topics SQL Server DBAs are interested in. The table below is the top 5 SQL Server Central Stairway topics. I ranked the Stairways by the number of reads that started after 1/1/18 up to 10/16/19.
|2018-06-13||3,058||Stairway to SSAS Tabular|
|2018-06-05||2,460||Stairway to Azure SQL Database|
|2019-07-06||1,679||Stairway to Database Containers|
|2018-10-23||1,559||Stairway to Azure Data Factory|
|2018-04-25||1,305||Stairway to Machine Learning Services|
Azure and cloud dominant the Stairway stats as expected! The Containers Stairway jumped to number 3 in only 3 months of the data I checked.
SQL Server Central Stairways get a thumbs up.
And the entire SQL Server Central website gets a big thumbs up for being a long running FREE SQL Server DBA learning resource. Right?
