comment What types of programming require practical category theory?
"soft", and conceptual. I don't have the heart to vote to close the question myself, 'cause I kinda like it, but if you wanted to, yeah, you could flag for migration. Probably easier to just delete it and ask over on Programmers, though.

comment SQL Server DBA - How to get a good one!
@ETFairfax: I respect that, but know that even advice like that is off-topic for SO. You'll have better luck on programmers.stackexchange.com, or careeroverflow.com. Yep, that's a different site than the one I mention above. So many SE sites...

If you know this isn't a recruitment site, why are you attempting to recruit here? Try the Careers SE site.

comment What are your programming idiosyncrasies?
SQL select lists tend to be long - I find multiline column lists extremely helpful. In general, set-based SQL tends to be dense - use more lines to break it up!

This cries out for more detail.
