  • Do You Learn?

    Silly question? Maybe. Hang with me, please. This will be short – a couple / three minutes, tops. Do you know more than you did six months ago? A year back? Yep, we both know you do.

  • Developing a Keynote for SQL Saturday #250

    I volunteered to help out and present a keynote at SQL Saturday #250.  It worked out that they couldn't find anyone better.  :-)  I am really looking forward to it and hope that I do not disappoint.
