Friend of Red Gate

, 2019-02-25

I’ve been a champion of Red Gate’s tools for years. Quite simply, they help me get work done quicker. They also make hard tasks easier. As a result, when I hear about someone having an issue that I know a Red Gate tool can solve, I try to point that person towards the appropriate tool.

Red Gate has been kind in return, continuing to allow me to be part of the Friends of Red Gate program. One of the nice perks is the small, inexpensive gifts they send. They are definitely unique to Red Gate, like the pair of socks pictured here. My wife started laughing when she saw these. I love hearing my wife laugh. Which means at some point I will likely wear these, probably to a SQL Server related event. So if you happen to catch me at an event, ask me if I’m wearing the socks.

If you’re not familiar with Red Gate’s tools, I invite you to check out their software. I and many other IT folks have found the various offerings invaluable.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
