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).

SQL Server Standard Writing Guidelines


Well, actually, these are the guidelines for submitting anything to SQLPASS, but it includes the guidelines for SQL Server Standard. If you’re considering submitting an abstract (and please, don’t consider it, do it) read through there for the basic information.

I’ve accepted six different abstracts so far on a variety of topics. It’s going to be some good stuff from some really smart people. A sampling of topics includes; expanded use of tally tables (table of numbers), designing partitioning schemes (I’m looking forward to this one), multi-level SSIS project dependency and communication, how to read and interpret execution plans (not by me), and a full description on triggers.

We need more. If you’ve got writing experience, please, write an article for SQL Server Standard. Abstracts are all that is required to get going. You can send them to grant.fritchey@sqlpass.org.

Now that the Standard has died again, they should probably take the guideline submittal page down from the SQLPASS Website.

As a sidebar, I think it would be really cool to list some of the better-run SQL Forum sites (like SQLServerCentral.com, SQLTeam.com, and a couple others) along with not only the "home" URL for each website, but also the "Write for us" URL for each website.  Could be very helpful to help PASS get some hits, but also helpful for the websites.

You're right, they ought to take that down. I'll mention it to them.

As to the sidebar, I did exactly that for PASS a while back. It's located here: www.sqlpass.org/.../SQLOnlineCommunities.aspx

Let me know if that's what you're looking for.

Yeah... that's the ticket, Grant.  Thanks.

Heh... up next... me figuring out how to get an email response when I post a comment on someone's blog.  ;-)
