My first book review! SQL Server 2014 with PowerShell v5 Cookbook

Has been a very busy year for me, haven’t posted lately, but was very excited to share this. I’ve had the opportunity to be a technical reviewer for three PowerShell books this year! One that I’ve really enjoyed reviewing has just been released, and the publisher Packt is offering an end of year sale for $5 eBook […]

Helping out at TechEd 2014 in Houston

Bi-Annual blog post

Yes, six months just went by. Since I’ve last posted: My youngest  is walking, and also talking (in his own language, English will come soon I’m sure.) I’ve assisted a small handful of clients and their customers with their database, application and infrastructure needs. Taught SQL querying and administration classes onsite around Florida. Delivered a […]

Back to Work, and ain’t it Great?

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand a month goes by.  🙂 PASS Summit 2013 was a great experience, made several contacts, a few friends, and learned a lot about SQL, and lot more about this I.T. industry we are in. It’s a big place, and the rules are continually changing.   It was a pleasure to volunteer as an MCT Ambassador […]

There have been so many over the years.. but I’ve started my Useful SQL Scripts page, and will add to it […]

On the road!

I’m on the road, training this week in Tempe, AZ. It’s cold, but it’s a dry cold! Have 3 client projects in the works, plus learning SQL 2012 ins and outs. Looks like it’s going to be a busy year.

Too busy to blog

SO….. Despite my best intentions, I haven’t kept up with blogging. The reason why is actually good news… I’ve been crazy busy. Since I’ve last blogged I have: Trained a few SQL classes (MOC 6232B and 2778A, 70-432 and 70-433 test prep.) Built my first WCF Restful web service prototype for a long time client. […]

SQL cluster on the cheap with Hyper-V and iSCSI

Speaking on how to set up SQL clustering in a virtual environment, for development and testing. Discuss options for production deployment. Now, how to compress 9 hours of setup into a session… Expect some smoke and mirrors along with some neat technology. Does anyone have some SSDs I can borrow? 🙂 July 23rd Tentative […]

Catching up on blogging, new opportunities

So today I’m catching up after a year of no posts. While I can see the value in blogging, I’ve just had too many distractions to count. Recent events have convinced me it’s important to start up again. I recently attended the first PASS SQL Rally in Orlando, had a great time, met good people, and […]
