This isn’t the first time I’ve asked about this – I’ve requested my work not be linked on this website in the past. I believe publishing my work without my permission is not ...

I know the members ...
I'm taking Brent Ozar's (Blog | @BrentO | SQLPeople) suggestion regarding my ramble-rant about the software business. At the Spring 2011 DevConnections Conference in Orlando, I had an opportunity to sit down with Brent for a good long chat. One of the first things he said to me was ''You need to put up a landing ...
