Adam Machanic, Boston-based SQL Server developer, shares his experiences with programming, monitoring, and performance tuning SQL Server. And the occasional battle with the query optimizer.
A year ago this week, I moved my SQLJunkies blog over to this one, on SQLblog.com. I decided to cross-post for a while in order to take advantage of the syndication offered by SQLJunkies. At this point, it seems that my SQLblog blog is getting more activity (and better activity), so I'm officially cutting off my cross-posting. Going forward, content will only be posted here.
Thanks to all of the SQLblog bloggers for helping to create such a great community!
