I recently received the news that I’ve been renewed as a Friend of Red Gate. I’ve been a big fan of Red Gate since the days when SQL Compare first debuted. Tremendous tools are not the best asset, though. If you weren’t aware, the people are. Most folks are familiar with the more well known SQL luminaries like Grant Fritchey, Steve Jones, Kathi Kellenberger, and Kendra Little. However, everyone I’ve interacted with in the organization have been great.
