Anniversary at Database Trends & Applications Magazine

I was happy to hear that the magazine Database Trends and Applications had recently relaunched their website.  While I’d been a columnist there for a quite a while, I’d never been able to easily find my own articles nor check to see if they’d generated any interest.  DBTA has changed all of that with their relaunch.  I was also surprised, upon closer examination, that I’d been writing there for more than a year.  Check to see if any of these articles are of interest to you.  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

The November article just went live this week. The site traffic is 79% North America, with India and the UK as the next largets readership markets. It was heartening to see a relatively high level of interest in the “Code of Ethics for DBA’s” among other topics.
