Becoming A Mentor

We've got a junior level web developer.

Who's been tasked with getting a web site up in running.

In Visual Studio .net.

And I heard that he's been struggling.

So I offered to assist.

So I went upstairs and asked what he was doing.

Turns out he was trying to connect to SQL-Server via .net.

And I reviewed his code.

And added sufficient privileges to SQL-Server user id.

So now he could see the database from VS.

I modified his connection string.

Ran the web, sure enough he was connected.

So I asked IT if they could load SQL-Server locally so he wouldn't have to log into VM to access the DB.

And my boss asked me to mentor the guy

So I agreed.

Funny thing, he calls me "Sir".

And so it goes!
