    It’s your turn. You start blogging. You cannot start in July 2007 like I did – even if you have a Delorean. But you can start in July 2015. Here’s the thing: In 2023, eight more years will have passed. Will you have posted 700 blog posts by then? You can. How do I know? It’s possible. “What Do I Blog About, Andy?” What was the last ...

    Adam Machanic (Blog | @AdamMachanic) emailed me way back in July 2007 and asked if I’d be interested in joining the awesome crew blogging at SQLBlog.com. I was honored to be asked and loved the idea of joining the bloggers here (“A group of really smart SQL Server bloggers… plus me”). And wow – this is my 700th post at SQLBlog! Thank you, ...

  • Heading to SQL Sat NYC!

    I will be speaking at SQL Sat 380 in NYC on the topic of Basic Performance Monitoring with Perfmon.  I have delivered this session many times and is usually well attended.  The session is geared for the person who has heard of Perfmon but not used it.  This is very much a 100 level offering. The last time that I was in NYC for a ...

  • New Challenges Ahead!

    I just joined the team at DB Best Technologies as a Principal Solutions Architect.  Check out their website at www.DBBest.com.  DB Best is probably best known for providing the SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) tool and associated support for it.  The SSMA tool was just recently updated to provide support for migrations ...

  • PASS Program Committee - Comments and Action

    Once again, I am serving on the PASS Program Committee this year for the App Dev Track.  As we are about to start the reviewing process, I had some thoughts that I wanted to share.  Last year, we had approximately 200 abstracts to review.  It should be a similar volume this year.  For me, abstracts usually go into three piles - ...

  • After Ten Years...

    Life goes on and sometimes it is just time to move on.  I am no longer with Scalability Experts.  Looking back at all of the time that I spent with them, I realize how fortunate that I was to be part of it. I am writing this because I wanted to thank Scalability Experts for supporting me in my involvement in the SQL Server ...

  • If Your Name Were a Verb

    Like my maternal grandfather, Buck Mayhew, did for his grandchildren; my friend Brian Kelley (blog | @kbriankelley) gives his children nicknames. A member of an SSIS team where I once worked was known for his tendency to rewrite SSIS packages. Any package, partially complete, assigned to him would be summarily replaced. It didn’t matter how ...

  • Social Media and Me

    Earlier this month, I decided to take a break from Twitter and Facebook. A couple of you noticed (I’m ok, Mom. Really!) so I decided to share this post. I continue to post updates about articles, blog posts, and presentations at LinkedIn, and I’m (obviously) still blogging. I encourage everyone interested in the goings-on at Linchpin People to ...

  • Self-Awareness – Feedback

    Self-awareness is an important trait. I believe it is especially important for consultants. For each of us, there is some gap between reality and what we perceive. I believe one measure of humility (or pride) is this self-awareness delta. I also believe we can narrow this gap by engaging in exercises in intentional awareness. Which exercises? ...
