Have you ever found it difficult to explain how something works to a co-worker? What about reading documentation? We have all been there before and in this episode we chat with Ray Kim about his thoughts on how we can be better at communicating technically.
What is interesting is the number of tools that are now available to help us with communicating ideas; however, we all still struggle with communication.

Perhaps you have heard about a runbook--the documented instructions you should follow in the event of a disaster or some situation where an outage occurs. Instructions are great for IT folks as they give a reference to follow--and they don't freak out even if we might. They don't, however, include instructions for everyone--what about the folks that aren't tapping away on the keyboard? In this episode, we chat with Greg Moore about his experience in emergency situations outside of IT and how we might apply these principles in our environment.
Whether you are directly in the line of fire or support those that do, we think you will find this conversation interesting.

Listener Eduardo Cervantes wanted to get our take on what developers should do when they get admin access to a database. We take on this challenge and I give 5 points you might consider if you are a developer with admin access to the SQL Server. As Uncle Ben in Spiderman quotes, "With great power comes great responsibility." We hope you use yours wisely.
