YouTube Channel Update

Hey! Here’s the latest on my YouTube Channel. Click on through and subscribe. I’ll be doing lots of stuff on the Microsoft Data Platform, GDPR, DevOps, Redgate, and all sorts of IT related information.

Here are the last couple of weeks worth of videos:

Very popular was my discussion of the idea that the reason DBAs don’t adopt the latest and greatest piece of shiny is because we’re all beholden to vendors instead of trying to make good decisions for our the organizations that pay us (as if the “best” decision is to always grab the new shiny). OK, I’m giving away my thoughts, here’s the video:

Next most popular was my question, so, if we’re not resisting change because of vendor lock (and we’re not) why are we resisting change?

I love the work we’re doing with Redgate SQL Monitor. It’s becoming more and more of an estate level tool (without abandoning that helpful, small company feel). Check out some of the new features.

Finally, I’ve been reading the GDPR. You should be reading the GDPR. Here’s some of the information I’ve found interesting from my latest read.

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).
