  • On Kindness

    Do you remember time kindness backfired? Do you remember kindness letting you down? Me neither. Kindness never fails. I can hear you thinking, “Yeah, Andy? Well there was this time I was kind and…” The thing you’re going to finish that sentence with, the thing that didn’t happen? That wasn’t going to happen anyway. But here’s what did happen. ...

  • Advice to New Tech Bloggers

    If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that I travel and speak quite a lot. (Bizarre fact - I've been blogging since 2004 when blogging was a new thing). A frequent question I'm asked at these events and afterwards in email is ''I want to start blogging, but don't know where to start. What do you recommend?'' This is a such a ...

  • Put Your New Leadership Knowledge Into Practice

    Have you ever tried to hit a golf ball toward the pin, toss a dart at the bull's-eye, or chuck a fly at a trout? If you're like most people, your first attempt didn't come anywhere close to hitting the mark. Your golf ball may have found the woods, your dart may have sunk into the wall, and your fly may have slapped the back of your head.These ...

  • Where do 100-Level Sessions belong at PASS?

    Now that the PASS Summit 2014 is over, I remember having a hard time deciding which sessions to attend and can't wait for the USB to arrive.  This year, I was on the Program Committee for the first time ever.  I would recommend the experience to all speakers or potential speakers at some point.  I know with the explosion of SQL ...

  • Less than a month away...

    The PASS Summit for 2014 is nearly upon us, and the MVP Summit is immediately prior, in the same week and the same city. This is my first MVP Summit since early 2008. I’ve been invited every year, but I simply haven’t prioritised it. I’ve been awarded MVP status every year since 2006 (just received my ninth award), but in 2009 and 2010 I attended ...

  • Wanted: Senior DBA or Dev-DBA (And So Darn Hard to Find!)

    I mentor, teach, and consult about SQL Server. It’s an incredible tool –it is an extremely flexible, adaptable, and complex data environment. SQL Server is capable of bringing tremendous value to an organization when it is configured, tuned, and used appropriately. And one of the things that I am occasionally engaged to do for a client, is to help ...

  • When is your interview?

    Sometimes it’s tough to evaluate someone – to figure out if you think they’d be worth hiring. These days, since starting LobsterPot Solutions, I have my share of interviews, on both sides of the desk. Sometimes I’m checking out potential staff members; sometimes I’m persuading someone else to get us on board for a project. Regardless of who is on ...
