Let me start off with a disclaimer that these thoughts on the January PASS board meeting are my own as I do not speak on behalf of PASS. I have been on the PASS Board of Directors for about 4 months now and we had our first in person board meeting in late January. You […]

The North Texas SQL Server User Group Board of Directors has decided to do something a little bit different for selecting Precons for our next SQLSaturday.  The SQLSaturday event will be held on October 3rd with the precons on October 2nd.  We have decided that since it is the community and our user group members […]

I was just awarded as a Microsoft SQL Server MVP! I can’t believe Microsoft has chosen me for this award and to be included in such a prestigious program.  There are only a little over 70 SQL Server MVPs in the United States and a little over 350 world wide. For my readers who are […]
