Do I use Notebooks?

T-SQL Tuesday is the brainchild of Adam Machanic (Blog Twitter). The first T-SQL Tuesday invitation was in December 2009 and it is still going strong. It is a monthly blog party on the second Tuesday of each month. Currently, Steve Jones (Blog Twitter) organises the event and maintains a website with all previous posts. Everyone is welcome to participate in this monthly blog post.

This month’s T-SQL Tuesday is hosted by Steve. Steve says:

I want you to write about how you have used, or would like to use, a Jupyter notebook. This seemed to be exciting for many people at first, but I haven’t seen a lot of uptake from users in general. So I’m curious if you are using them.

Am I using Notebooks ?

Hehe. I LOVE notebooks. I use them all of the time and every day.

I have assisted clients with using notebooks to

  • Integrate new team members
  • Create a repository of incident response notebooks dynamically created with Azure DevOps
  • Create a repository of daily tasks notebooks
  • Create a repository of common large scale changes
  • Off-load DBA requests to Service Desk with notebooks
  • Use notebooks to demonstrate changes to Product Owners and other teams
  • Use notebooks for diagnosis by customers
  • Use notebooks to investigate Azure environments and Azure Data Services
  • and more

I use notebooks to validate dbachecks PRs, to demonstrate dbachecks and dbatools with docker that anyone can use.

I am thoroughly looking forward to seeing what other people do with notebooks. I love how the community helps us all to develop and move forward by sharing.

All this and
