Adam Machanic

Adam Machanic, Boston-based SQL Server developer, shares his experiences with programming, monitoring, and performance tuning SQL Server. And the occasional battle with the query optimizer.

[New England] FYI: Andy Leonard Rocks!

Just a quick note to say thanks to Andy Leonard for coming all the way to Boston to do a talk at the New England SQL Server Users Group last night. Andy's topic was Change Data Capture and SSIS 2008, and in addition to those core areas he showed the group a variety of related tips and tricks. He is not only extremely technically saavy, but also a very engaging speaker -- a really great combination and I'm glad that we had the chance to bring him out.

If you're in the area, make sure to stop by for future meetings. More great stuff coming up, but the speakers have quite a challenge given the standard set by Andy last night!

Adam, thank you for allowing me the privilege of presenting to the New England SQL Server User Group! You had a fantastic crowd last night (they laughed at most of my jokes, even!) and I had a blast.

We were privileged to have him at Midlands PASS last year when he was teaching a course down here in Columbia, SC. If anyone is looking for an outstanding speaker who cares about his craft and the community, heed Adam's words. Andy is one who certainly fits this description.

I agree, thanks for presentation.  I was able to find your articles after the presentation to get more detail.  I'll find some use for all this.
