SQLPeople at SQLBits

Ever heard of It is a website set up by Andy Leonard to showcase members of the SQL Server community by asking them the following questions:

  1. Everyone’s an accidental DBA (or database professional) – what’s your story? How’d you become a SQLPerson?
  2. What’s your favorite part of your current gig?
  3. Complete this sentence: “If I could do anything else, I would…” 
  4. Complete this sentence: “When I’m not working I enjoy…”
  5. Complete this sentence: “I think the coolest thing in technology today is…”
  6. Complete this sentence: “I look forward to the day when I can use technology to…”
  7. Share something different about yourself. (Remember, it’s a family blog!)

Prior to the recent SQLBits X conference I asked Andy if I could extend the idea by posing the same questions to some of the conference attendees under the auspices of SQLPeople and film their responses, he graciously agreed. I managed to capture thirteen such videos and you can view them all online right now at

You can find all of these people online at @troublewithdata @mattmasson @john_welch @ctesta_oneill @workerthread @al_eardley @Varigence @davebally @gavinpayneuk @JimmyBoo @sqlsophist @Technitrain
