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).

MicroTraining: Performance Tuning Checklist

I’ve been playing a lot with Google+ and the Hangouts there. I love them. I think they’re opening up a whole new way of interacting and building community. Today Andy Leonard (blog|twitter) and Ken Watson (blog|twitter) were trying out the new features in G+, including desktop sharing. We were talking about how great this was and suddenly the idea of short, sharp training for small groups of people that can interact came into being. Andy termed it MicroTraining, and an idea was born.

So, tomorrow, 9/22/2011, at 11:00AM EDT, I’ll host a Google+ hangout. It will be public and accessible to anyone. I’ll make it one of the Air ones that gets recorded. That means that 10 people can attend & ask questions, but an unlimited number can watch.

It’s an experiment.

Please stop by. I’ll be going over a couple of slides from an upcoming presentation, Performance Tuning Checklist, that I’ll be putting on at the Connections conference that takes place in November. Please stop by.

I added you, Andy Leonard and Thomas LaRock to my Google + circle. Will that be enough to join the micro training session tomorrow? If you need to add me I am Ameena Lalani.

Thanks

That is a really cool thing that G+ is adding - desktop sharing.  That are huge benefits - but also huge pitfalls that could exist.  This kind of tech is really making it harder for companies to resist FT telecommute - desktop sharing being free and all (desktop sharing has been a barrier)
