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).

PASS Summit, Kilt Wednesday

Last year at the PASS Summit we held a silly little event called Kilt Wednesday. Only three people took part, but it was very popular nonetheless. Here’s a sample of what it looked like. This year is looking to be a lot bigger. Keep an eye on Twitter for updates under the hash tag: #sqlkilt.

If you’re going to the 2010 Summit, bring your kilt for Wednesday. Ladies, you’re invited too.

This is an unofficial event and has nothing to do with the PASS organization. We’re just having a little fun. Remember, Seattle is home to Utilikilts, so you can pick up a kilt while you’re there.

While I don't plan to partake in wearing a Kilt I will be happy to take a group photo so we can remember the 2nd annual Kilt Wednesday  :)

I'll have mine!

Oh, come on Pat. Please?

Still, happy to hear about more people taking part. I just hope that, if I get to speak again, I'm not scheduled for Wednesday, 'cause it'll be weird presenting in a kilt.

Wow.  All I can say is "Wow".  Not at the kilt idea, just at the kilt store you linked to.  Now I will have to partake if I make it to Seattle this year :-P
