  • 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 ...

  • Why We Write Supplemental - I find out how long it takes to answer the questions myself

    My next entry has ran into a number of issues getting finished, and from the start, I have planned on blogging my “current” answers, so now is as good a time as any. I have taken the questions from all of the previous entries, and have left them as is, but picking the questions I wanted to answer (or wanted to force myself to answer!) To make sure ...

  • Why We Write #3 - An Interview With Rob Farley

    In the third entry in this series, we take a turn south, not in quality, but in the geography of our next entrant. Rather our interview target is Rob Farley, who is from (well lives in) Australia.  Rob Farley is a SQL Server MVP, and is quite a busy fellow. He is the owner of a consulting company named LobsterPot Solutions, located in ...

Mark is also a speaker at SQL Saturday events, as well as the SQL PASS Business Analytics conference in 2013. Mark has been ...

  • Why We Write #1 - An Interview With Thomas LaRock

    I 've been a writer of trade level technical materials for over 13 years now, writing books, articles, blogs, and even tweets for a variety of outlets, almost exclusively about Microsoft SQL Server. While I won't claim to be the best writer in the world, I feel like I have the process of writing down fairly well, yet, for the life of me, there is ...
