The Scary DBA

I have twenty+ years experience in IT. That time was spent in technical support, development and database administration. I work forRed Gate Software as a Product Evangelist. I write articles for publication at SQL Server Central, Simple-Talk, PASS Book Reviews and SQL Server Standard. I have published two books, ”Understanding SQL Server Execution Plans” and “SQL Server 2008 Query Performance Tuning Distilled.” I’m one of the founding officers of the Southern New England SQL Server Users Group and its current president. I also work on part-time, short-term, off-site consulting contracts. In 2009 and 2010 I was awarded as a Microsoft SQL Server MVP. In the past I’ve been called rough, intimidating and scary. To which I usually reply, “Good.” You can contact me through grant -at- scarydba dot kom (unobfuscate as necessary).

Microsoft Thrive


I was introduced to the Thrive program when my user group held a Thrive event back in March. Since then I’ve referenced some of their material several times. It’s a decent little program from Microsoft to try to help out IT pros in this tough economy.

Hopefully this won’t create a circular reference and bring down one or more web sites, but I got picked to be the IT Pro of the month for August over at Thrive. Nothing comes with it except ever-lasting glory (measured in weeks).
