TouchBase #9 Mark van der Haar

Touchbase, the podcast from OptimaData. In this podcast, we explore the person behind the role, behind the DBA. Is the image we have that databases are boring correct and that’s because of the people working on them? What drives them and what really makes them happy. Maybe we will find out that they are very ordinary and even nice people. And we try to get an inside look into that database world. In each episode we put a database expert in the spotlight. #9 Mark van der Haar.

In the podcast we have 5 fixed blocks that recur in each episode:
– Theses
– Morning ritual
– Top3 playlist
– Guilty Pleasure
– And the chain question!

Chain Question:

The question to Mark is from Vincent Spruit and he asked Mark about the relationship Data Engineering and DBA work and whether he thinks those roles will grow closer together in the coming years.

Mark’s question to the next guest is how this guest views the rise of AI and in what sense he thinks this is going to affect the work of Database Experts.
