Welcome to the Voice of the DBA, thoughts from Steve Jones on databases, SQL Server, and life.

I ran across a review of a developer's first year at a company. The company is endjin and the poster describes their first year as a "software engineer apprentice," which is an interesting way to look at one's early career. While it's not for everyone, I suspect that many developers in this business could actually use a bit of apprentice time to solidify their foundation of knowledge.

The post talks more about the way in which the work is done than the actual tools involved. A few are mentioned, but this is really a look back at the philosophical way in which the company solves problems. More importantly, it's the view of an apprentice learning a trade.
