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).

More PASS Activities


As if I needed more.

I’ll be sitting at the blogger table and blogging live (as live as I get) during the keynotes. It should be fun. As I said on Twitter, this means I get to pick on the cool kids. Life is good.

Thursday I’ll be doing a book signing with Apress between 12:30PM-1:00PM across from the Summit bookstore. I don’t have a clue which book we’re talking about since they’ll be supplying it. I hope it’s the Performance Tuning one, but it might be the Introduction one. Either way, that’s another place to track me down & say hello.

In addition to my keynote blogging, I’ll put up a summary for each day of the summit just like last year. It’s looking to be a great summit.
