SQLStudies

My name is Kenneth Fisher and I am Senior DBA for a large (multi-national) insurance company. I have been working with databases for over 20 years starting with Clarion and Foxpro. I’ve been working with SQL Server for 12 years but have only really started “studying” the subject for the last 3. I don’t have any real "specialities" but I enjoy trouble shooting and teaching. Thus far I’ve earned by MCITP Database Administrator 2008, MCTS Database Administrator 2005, and MCTS Database Developer 2008. I’m currently studying for my MCITP Database Developer 2008 and should start in on the 2012 exams next year. My blog is at www.sqlstudies.com.

I’m going to my first SQL Saturday!

I got to go to the Pass Summit in 2011 and had a fantastic time despite some travel issues caused by my own stupidity. Shortly after that I got to go to the Pass Rally in Dallas and had an even more fantastic time (no travel problems this time). My boss paid for the Summit and the Rally but training is tight for us just like it seems to be everywhere so while he might be able to pay for something next year or the year after in the mean time I’m on my own. Unfortunately my personal travel budget is maybe $20. Meaning anything I go to on my own dime has to be within driving range. So you can imagine how exited I was (and am) when I got an email from the North Texas SQL Servers Users Group announcing SQLSaturday #255 in Dallas! It’s just shy of a 2 hour drive but at least it’s doable.

I’m registered, and I’m counting down the months. I can’t wait to see everyone there!
