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 #187 Richmond And More

In just a couple of weeks I’ll be flying down to Richmond, VA to speak at SQL Saturday #187. I’ll be presenting two topics, Backups for the Accidental DBA and Query Tuning in the Clouds. It’s going to be a great event with a bunch of excellent speakers. If you’re in the area, come on down and say hello.

And, if you have some time on Friday before the event, Red Gate Software is hosting a special 1/2 day seminar targeting the database professional just getting started with their career. There are only a few seats left, so if you’re interested, sign up quick. Steve Jones and I will be presenting on several topics from monitoring to backups, database corruption and indexing. It’ll be great way to learn, network, see some Red Gate Software and then share a tasty beverage afterwards. Instruction and networking the Red Gate way.
