Today I have the pleasure of talking with Peter, who goes by the pseudonym @height8 on App.net. He lives in the lovely city of Toronto and, when not inventing odd things, can be found working as a CTO during the day.

Join me in learning more about Peter on this episode of Discover ADN!

Three People He Recommends


This episode of Discover ADN was brought to you by Born SQL and their product, dbSnitch!

dbSnitch is a once-off report service, where we perform an in-depth examination of your existing database instances and make bespoke recommendations to bring them up to industry standards – and ensure that your data is safe.

  • A dbSnitch report is about 16 to 20 pages in length and includes:
  • A workbook containing all diagnostic information extracted from the instance, along with explanations for our conclusions (complete transparency).

Recommendations on upgrades, best practice hardware and software improvements, maintenance plans and disaster recovery plans.
All in all, dbSnitch gives you a comprehensive view of where your database currently stands, along with a customised game plan to get where it needs to be.
