in a post on my personal, family blog.
Are you using your benefits to further your SQL Server skills? The other day, the company I work for (Scalability Experts) had a benefits meeting where open enrollment for insurance and other similar things were discussed.

Transparency - A Great Leadership Quality
I've always appreciated how Andy Warren (blog| twitter) operates in the most transparent manner, especially as it relates to his role as a director for the Professional Association for SQL Server.

As he does so well, Andy Warren (Blog | @sqlAndy) has issued a challenge to the community: What Should PASS Be?

Are you a member of a team of database professionals? Are you part of a developer team? Do you manage or lead a team? This presentation is for you. Andy Leonard shares experiences, war stories, and lessons learned from years of ...
Ok, I admit it. I've done about as good a job publicizing my monthly professional development column, Plays Well With Others, as NBC did when the transitioned Jay Leno back to the Tonight Show.
So I'm going to try to better, henceforth and forever more! Two entries ago, I talked about the The 8 Characteristics of Exceptional ...
How 'Bout a Little Context?
Let me be direct with you. I love SQL Saturday.
If it were a woman,
I'd marry it. (Avoiding all extraneous thoughts of what my real wife

Check out this fun Flickr Feed from the recent SQL Saturday in Chicago
