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 Saturday #71: Call For Speakers

The SQL Saturday #71/New England Data Camp #3 call for speakers has been open for quite a while. But, we had not yet sent out an official request. That email has now gone out the door. Here it is for those who might be interested in presenting. Please consider this your personal email:

Let me tell you a little bit about our event. Last year we had over 300 attendees. We plan on doing that well again this year. That’s a guaranteed audience for your presentation. We’re holding the conference in the Microsoft offices on Jones Road in Waltham. The venue is well appointed and set up for presentations. We’re already gathering sponsors from all over the country and the region. It’s going to be a great event.

Please submit a session because we’d love to have you. The call for speakers closes 3/3/2011.

Thanks,

Grant Fritchey, President, Southern New England SQL Server Users Group

Adam Machanic, President, New England SQL Server Users Group

Mike Walsh, President, Seacoast SQL Server Users Group

Thomas LaRock, President, Hartford SQL Server Users Group

Wish I could be there, but a conflict that day for me. Good luck finding speakers.

Damn, Damn, DAMN!  I'd love to be there either as a speaker or an attendee but just started a new job.  You know what that means... I have to earn vacation time! DAMN!  I could have killed several birds with a single stone including a visit with my parents in "Little Rhody".  DAMN! ;-)
