"Do not be afraid to ask questions"
I think this also applies to: Do not be afraid to post your anwers and solutions here on the forum.
Even if it is not the best solution, someone will most likely tell you so and that will allow you to learn something.
Exactly and well said. And if someone keeps in mind that there will almost always be...
- More than one correct answer...
- A better answer...
- Follow up questions and answers...
- And a love for performance... (after accuracy, of course!)
... then, oh my! The things we can learn from each other. I can't think of any place else to get such a huge cross section of different real life problems and the same problems in different scenarios anywhere else in the world than on a good SQL Server Forum and, because discussions are not only allowed on SQLServerCentral but encouraged, it's amazing what some people will come up with on this site.
And, no... I have no affiliation with RedGate nor SQLServerCentral other than being a sometimes-author and frequent poster.
Mike, spot on article and I had no idea that such a thing as "Blendology" existed. What an incredible idea. It just goes to show what others can learn when you write and article or join in the discussion on a thread on one of the forums.
And thank you for the very kind mention. I'm humbled. Not sure I'll ever be able to make it across the pond but there's a huge number of people that I'd both like to meet up with again and people I've not yet met in person but, thanks to these fine forums, have had the privilege of "talking" and "working" with, including yourself.
