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 Central Guest Editorial


My second guest editorial is up at SQL Server Central. These are fun to do (especially the video) even though they’re a shocking amount of work considering their size. My hat’s off to Steve for churning these out day after day. The man does earn his keep. Anyway, go on over and let me know if you have a favorite character from history that might make a good DBA.

Nice job. I liked this one, and got my response in, albeit a day late.

Thanks. I saw your comment. Good one. I was thinking about using Teddy too but decided to go obscure instead, just for fun.

I've already got an idea for my next one. Your advice was good, take notes, write down ideas, it starts to make it easier. I'm still in awe of the fact that you're churning out one of these a day.
