  • Education and Career Resources from Microsoft and the Community

    Sometimes I'm timely in getting the news out on useful resources.  And, other times, I'm a bit slower on the draw.  As I told my friends back at New Year's Day, ''As an official member of the Procrastinators Club, welcome to 2008!''  On the other hand, it's always good to remind folks of great resources that are still ...

  • Top Notch Database Professionals Offer More Than Technical Prowess

    I've done a poor job lately in keeping my SQLBlog posts synchronized with my professional blog.  As a result, you probably haven't seen a column I've been doing on professional development for the database professional called Plays Well With Others.  My apologies... I originally started this series of posts in support of the PASS ...

  • Political Calculus - PASS Nominations

    Pardon me, sir. Do I have a dog in this fight? Do I have a dog in this Fight? If I did, it'd be the Warner Brothers Barnyard Dog. After my term of service on the PASS board of directors ended in December of 2009, I fully intended to stay far, far out of the way.  It's an intention that I've largely been able to fulfill,excluding the ...

  • Now on SQLPASS, "Can Integrity Be Learned?"

    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 ...

  • PASS 2009 Lifetime PASSion Award

    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 ...

  • What Three Events Brought You Here?

    Whiners and Whingers Get Wedgies Yes, I deserve a Wedgie There I was, just a couple weeks back, whining that I wasn't getting tagged by friends when a new meme comes out.  Sure enough, when my friend, Paul Randal (blog | twitter), starts a new meme with me as one of the first handful of people tagged, it's taken me a full ten days to ...

  • Where You Can Find Me At the PASS Summit

    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 ...
