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 2012 Day 2: KILT DAY!

Welcome to the fourth Kilt Day at the SQL PASS Summit. It might be a little silly, but it’s fun. It’s also Women in Technology day with the WIT Luncheon. Guys are invited.

A short word about the bloggers table. Last year we were… a little loud. So this year, we were cautioned… well, more like told to be quiet or they’d take away our toys. I agree with the intent of the message, please keep it down. But the delivery… it hurt PASS at the bloggers table and upset people. As I was reminded last night by a dear, dear friend who I accidently hurt, how you deliver a message is as important as the message you deliver.

But, that’s OK. Let’s learn from our mistakes, grow & move on.

IT”S KILT DAY!

Last night, I attended karaoke with the fine people from PragmaticWorks. Thanks guys for a great event and for letting me in the door.

And did I mention, IT”S KILT DAY!
