Ok, I have to admit the painful truth. I'm reliably slow to the finish line. This year, I got my slides into PASS HQ by the skin of my teeth, the weekend before the event was to begin. Although I could say with a straight face ''I uploaded my slides!''. I have to be honest that I wasn't surprised when many of my attendees said that ...

Even though I've recently changed jobs, I'll still be speaking at a lot of SQL events across the country and internationally. There are still a few trips that I've yet to finalize, in particular with the fine folks in Houston, run by my friend Nancy Hidy (blog | twitter), and my friends in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, run by ...

to cover all of the stuff I've been up to, instead of the one-off's I
usually post when I've got ...
A HAPPY RETIREMENT
January 1st, 2010 marked a very special day for me. It was the
first time in the past ten years in which I had no official PASS
responsibility at the HQ level. (I'm still serving in the local PASS
chapter here in Nashville, along with the awesomeness that is DrSQL (blog | twitter) and the whackness that is Joe ...
In previous years, I hardly had time to sit down and catch a breather at a PASS Summit. Between my duties as an officer of PASS, exhibit hall time with Quest Software
(my employer), speaking in my own sessions, and meeting with PASS
volunteers and community organizers, I was busy from the crack of dawn
until midnight all week ...
Fall is now in full swing, and after a relatively quiet several months my speaking schedule is about to jump into fairly-packed mode. Following is a list of where I'll be headed over the next couple of months:
Next week I'm really excited to be teaching a day of the Microsoft Certified Master: Microsoft SQL server 2008 program's beta ...
