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 […]

I am excited and humbled to be speaking at the PASS Summit for my second year in a row! There were 943 submissions and only 144 spots, so I am really excited and honored to be a part of the largest and most amazing SQL Server conference in the world.  They are expecting around 5,000 […]

I am beyond excited to announce that I have been accepted to speak at the annual SQL PASS Summit 2013 in Charlotte, NC.  This will be my first time to speak at this event and I can’t wait!  The session I will be presenting is titled “How Active Directory Affects SQL Server”. I have been […]

I blogged about this back in September of 2010, but technology changes so it’s time to revisit this again.  Now I’m not anything even close to a marketing expert, but I’ve been the Director of Logistics and Communications for the North Texas SQL Server User Group for the past 2 years (I just started a […]

This post is a live blog of the PASS Summit 2012 keynote from day 2 on 11/8/2012.  This post is intended to be a live note taking.

I’m officially on the slate and running for the PASS 2012 Nomination Committee! I love the SQL Community and everything it embodies.  I am very involved at the local and regional level and gained a unique view into PASS working on SQLRally.  I know most of the current and past board members and those relationships have […]

I will be live blogging the SQLPASS Summit keynote again today. Today’s keynote will be delivered by community favorite Dr. David Dewitt. Rick Heiges opens us up and introduces a special musical number by Rob Farley and Buck Woody. It was hilarious with a special lyrical shout out to Paul Randal. Rick is now walking […]

I was chosen to sit at the blogger table and live blog the keynote tomorrow so plan to be here at 8:15pt and I’ll refresh the post that day as often as possible. I may not be at the table today, but that won’t stop me from blogging anyway. Keynote Rushab Mehta starts us out […]

Today was my travel day.  I don’t travel much at all so it’s always an exciting adventure for me.  I left the house with plenty of time and made it to the Parking Spot in about 40-45 minutes.  If you travel out of DFW international airport I highly suggest using these guys for parking.  The airport […]
