Back on the trail…. #sqlsatnash

I realize that I should probably be blogging about my New Year’s resolutions, but meh… I’ve been super busy surviving the holidays.  So busy in fact that I’ve failed to mention that I’ll be presenting at the SQLSaturday in Nashville on January 18, 2014.  I actually got selected to present TWO topics, which is HUGE […]

SQL In The City Atlanta, Oct 11, 2013

Just a quick note to say that I’m super excited to be presenting at the Red Gate SQL In the City event in Atlanta this year; I’ll be covering some of their development tools (many of which I use daily).  As far as I know, there are still some seats left, but I wouldn’t count […]

#SQLSATATL simply rocked…

So, last Saturday, I went to the first SQL Saturday in Atlanta that I had absolutely no responsibility on the actual day of the event.  I wasn’t an organizer, I didn’t really even volunteer.  As a chapter leader for AtlantaMDF, I do have to go in and pay the bills later this week, but for […]

Couple of upcoming presentations

I know; I suck at blogging. Anyway, I have a couple of upcoming presentations this month, so I figured I needed to get back and gear and at least post a notice about them.  First, I’ll be presenting at A Bunch of Devs ( on the Red Gate development suite of tools.  Funny story; I […]

#SQLSatATL SQLSaturday Atlanta 220–May 18, 2013

Just a quick note; SQLSaturday is coming back to Atlanta on May 18, 2013.  This free (lunch is optional) event usually sells out way in advance, so you may want to go ahead and sign up.  Also, the speaker lineup tends to fill up pretty quickly (call for speakers closes 2/24), so if you’re a […]

Finally putting together my #SQLPASS Summit schedule

It’s hard to believe that the Summit is next week; I’m just now pulling together my schedule, and I’ve got some tough choices to make.  I have noticed a pattern, however; this year, I’m going to sessions for new features and possible solutions as opposed to “OMG, I have to solve this problem NOW” kinds […]

Back in the saddle….

It’s been a while since I’ve last posted anything; I blame it on a strange blend of workaholism and laziness. However, before I drifted off to sleep tonight, I did want to mention that I would be presenting a topic at SQL Saturday 167 in Columbus, GA on September 9.  On September 11, in Columbia, […]

#SQLSat111 is a wrap…

I’ve tried to do these wrap-up posts over the years to give advice to the upcoming SQLSaturdays based on our experience, but I wanted to do this one a little differently.  Before I go too much further, let me do two things: State the obvious:  SQLSATURDAY 111  ROCKED!!!! Thank a whole bunch of people: Audrey […]

#SQLSat111 “Biggish Data”

Trying not to be to obnoxious about this, but I’m presenting on “Biggish Data” at SQL Saturday 111 in Atlanta tomorrow; if you’re there, swing by and see me.  I presented this on Monday at AtlantaMDF, and am attempting to incorporate the feedback from that presentation into this one.  Should be good, but I’m still […]

A day with Andy (and Matt..) #SQLSAT111 #SQLPASS

I first met Andy Leonard at my first PASS Summit (2008); he was sitting at the back of the room in the Chapter Leaders meeting.  At the time, there was this newfangled social technology called Twitter (perhaps you’ve heard of it), and everybody was live tweeting during the meeting (shades of things to come).  I […]
