Last Weeks Top “Reading” Links #70

2012-01-013It’s Monday time for this week’s weekly link round-up.  If you want to catch these links “live” (so exciting), follow me on twitter (@StrateSQL).  And see these throughout the day as I tweet out links of things I find interesting.  While these links aren’t the answer to life, the universe, and everything, they often share a few things about SQL Server and related technology topics that others may find useful.

The links included in this summary are those prefixed with ”Reading” and are items I’ve read over the past few days, usually after hours when sharing would be less than useful, and spaced out to avoid spamming.  The content of the links usually pertain to SQL Server, technology, and career topics; which I think others would find useful.

The Most Popular “Reading” Link

The most popular “Reading” item last week highlighted the top 10 speakers from last year’s PASS Summit.  The list includes:

Last week’s top 15 “Reading” Links

Along with the top link, here are the top fifteen items relating to SQL Server, technology and careers that were sent out last week.  (Seems I didn’t really tweet out as much last week as normal, guess being in Jacksonville at the home office kept me busy).  If you missed them throughout the week, here’s the opportunity to get caught up on some items that other’s read after I linked them out.
