  • Three Lessons Learned in 2016

    Some folks do not like to read posts of a more personal nature or posts that contain religious references. If you are one of those people, you have been forewarned. I’ve read lots of posts from people who are ready for 2016 to be over. I understand their reasons. Celebrities, friends, and family have passed away this year. The world economy ...

  • An Interview With Me

    This post is inspired by Kenneth Fisher’s [blog | @sqlstudent144] post, An interview with me. Ken suggested, “Now if any other bloggers read this and feel like answering questions too I’d love to read them so make sure you put a link to your blog down in the comments below.” I’m in! 1. What are the various database job roles and ...

    It’s your turn. You start blogging. You cannot start in July 2007 like I did – even if you have a Delorean. But you can start in July 2015. Here’s the thing: In 2023, eight more years will have passed. Will you have posted 700 blog posts by then? You can. How do I know? It’s possible. “What Do I Blog About, Andy?” What was the last ...

    Adam Machanic (Blog | @AdamMachanic) emailed me way back in July 2007 and asked if I’d be interested in joining the awesome crew blogging at SQLBlog.com. I was honored to be asked and loved the idea of joining the bloggers here (“A group of really smart SQL Server bloggers… plus me”). And wow – this is my 700th post at SQLBlog! Thank you, ...

  • Andy-Frickin-Leonard

    A few years ago at a conference, a young man approached me and asked if I was ready for my presentation. I squared with him (for emphasis) and replied, “No, sir. In fact, I’m worried about it.” He looked a little stunned and said, “Why?” “I’ve never done this presentation before, I don’t like the flow of the material yet, and I’m concerned it’s ...

  • SQLPass NomCom election: Why I voted twice

    Did you already cast your votes for the SQLPass NomCom election? If not, you really should! Your vote can make a difference, so don’t let it go to waste. The NomCom is the group of people that prepares the elections for the SQLPass Board of Directors. With the current election procedures, their opinion carries a lot of weight. They can reject ...
  • Me and the Man

    Part 1 I grew up poor – the US version of poor. We never missed a meal but a few times it was only because we had a successful hunt. Suffice it to say that when we interacted with others, they always had more than us. More stuff, nicer houses and cars and toys. We weren’t unhappy kids – my brothers and I – but we were unable to do some things we ...

  • Buck Woody is Changing Jobs

    Recently I read an article (http://lifehacker.com/is-it-bad-to-stay-at-one-company-for-very-long-1295782130) that stated that if you are at the same company for more than a few years, it will harm your career. I don’t agree – consider any successful CEO, musician, or master-level craftsperson – those people may have been doing ...

  • Why We Write #7 - An Interview with Allan Hirt

    For today's entry (and after a brief side trip through my own experiences), I move just slightly out of the SQL realm to a Microsoft Clustering MVP. Ok, in reality he is very much a SQL Server expert/guru (having taught for the SQL Server 2008 Microsoft Certified Masters courses), and has been for many years. He just spends more of his (at least ...
