My list of the top 18 sites for database pros

In today's rapidly changing IT world, database experts who wish to remain relevant must keep up-to-date on all kinds of technology - both database-related and other.

DBAs should understand new data-related technologies but also other newer technologies that interact with database systems. Don't ignore industry and technology trends simply because you cannot immediately think of a database-related impact. Many non-database-related "things" eventually find their way into DBMS software and database applications. An example for that is Agile methodologies, such as DevOps and Continuous Delivery which until recently were not thought of as part of the database eco-system.

Here is my list of the top 18 news and opinion sites that DBAs, database developers, SysAdmin, and other database pros should check on a regular basis:
