  • Don't you ever come across any new consultants who don't screw up all the time?

    What behaviour and strategies do they use to not annoy the hell out of you? Do they nag you with never ending questions instead, or can they cope with it some other way?
    • I was impressed with an Oracle consultant I worked with []. We needed serious help dealing with some performance issues and he was very, very good. Part of what helped is that he did serious interviewing of the entire development team to find out what we needed and many of our recommendations made it into his final report. He also turned out to be really good at database normalization (even to the point of recognizing when normalization would be a bottleneck).

      • With a name like that (dbperfman), you'd wonder whether the dude's gonna show up wearing a superhero cape.

        But then I looked at the site [], and he is obviously a ninja (and ninjas don't wear capes).
