Don’t get me wrong. It’s been great. The beta tests. The advanced notices. The opportunity for feedback. It’s been a great relationship, a fantastic friendship. Look, it’s not you, it’s me. I want more. I want to take our relationship to the next level.
That’s why I’m excited as can possibly be to announce that I’m no longer in the Friends of Red Gate program because I’m now a Red Gate employee. That’s right, I’m colored Red! This is an amazing opportunity to step up my game to a whole new level and I’m thrilled to be able to take advantage of it.
I have a fascinating title: Product Evangelist. I’m going to be traveling around the country to various events, SQL Saturdays (Cleveland & Chicago already booked), SQL Rally, the PASS Summit, others, presenting the same old stuff I’ve always presented, performance tuning, development processes, etc. I’ll just also be presenting Red Gate software. I’ll still be writing the same kinds of articles and blog posts I always have, plus I’ll be working on articles and blog posts for Red Gate. I’ll still be writing the books, plus I’ll write more for Red Gate. I’ll actually still be involved with the Friends of Red Gate too, just from the other side now.
