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).

SQLBits Public Sessions

If you’re over in the UK, or close to it, you’ve probably heard of SQL Bits even if you haven’t attended. If you’re across the pond here in the US or somewhere else you may have heard of SQL Bits, but few of you have gone. Well, let me tell you, from everything I’ve heard, this is a community event you want to find your way to. So, I’m trying. This is my first time submitting to this outstanding event and I really want to go. But, in order to make the cut, I need your help. They base who presents on community feedback. This means you go over and vote. You’ll have to have a SQL Bits login, but if you’re even thinking about attending you’re going to have one of those anyway. I’ve submitted two sessions:

Database Backups for the Accidental DBA

and

Query Tuning in the Clouds

Read through those abstracts. If you think they’re worthy, please go here and vote for them. You’ll also find there are a huge number of sessions being potentially offered by some of the best speakers in the business. Check it out and vote on your favorites.
