#SQLSaturday – Is it really about the tools?

There’s been some interesting conversation on the SQLSaturday slack channel regarding the admin tools for SQLSaturday. It was spawned, in part, by this great set of ideas proposed by the Godfather of SQL Saturday, Andy Warren, regarding changing the way that software development for the tools is handled by PASS HQ: “So if that is […]

#DevOpsDays & #SQLSaturdays

SQLSaturday #41 Wrap-up: Lessons learned from Atlanta, April 24, 2010

I know many people have been worried about me because of the recent personal issues that I’ve been dealing with, but things have finally started to stabilize.  I know I’ve promised that before, so no promises to return to blogging or getting more involved in the community, but I’m starting to climb out of the […]

We’re looking at April 24 at the Microsoft facility in Alpharetta, GA.  I just submitted the request on the website tonight, so it probably won’t be official for a few days, but I a) needed something to blog about tonight, and b) wanted to get the word out to start some buzz. Like last year, […]

Wrapping up for SQLSaturday 25

Whew.  Just finished my presentation for SQLSaturday #25 (The Social DBA), and am now going through my short list of stuff left to do.  This has been an interesting experience because of the help from the college; having volunteers take care of things like food and beverages has been both helpful (and a little stressful; […]
