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.
Several months ago I asked Joe Sack why his team, the SQL Server Premier Field Engineers, wasn't blogging and sharing the insights that result from their work with a number of high-end SQL Server customers. He replied that he thought it was a great idea, and then I heard nothing until last week, when I was happy to receive an e-mail from Joe saying that the blog had finally been created.
The team has already put up a few interesting posts and I'm sure there are a lot more to come, so check it out! I'll be adding this blog to the SQLblog External Feeds Roller shortly, if you would rather grab the content from there.
