Whether you’re a newly minted DBA or a highly experienced one, the first week at a new job can stretch your patience to breaking as you try to get answers to a wide range of questions about how things work and why things are done (or not done) a certain way. It is perhaps the most dangerous week you’ll have as a DBA, because you don’t know exactly what you don’t know. This document is meant to be a roadmap for that first week to help you make sure you’re asking the right questions and prioritizing your efforts in a way to minimize risk. It’s also to help you meant to help you set expectations for yourself and those you work with.
