  • Why I am not going to PASS this year

    This is going to be one of my toughest non-technical posts ever. And the reason it will be difficult will have an ancillary relationship to the Lortabs I have been taking for the last two days. It has everything to do with me being at home while the 2014 PASS Summit is going on. Previously, the only Summit I had missed was the first one in ...

  • Microsoft MVP Award Renewal 2013

    There is a day of the year in which an MVP is ''expiring'' and in that day he hopes to receive the renewal notification email for this important professional recognition. The MVP Award Program is the way used by Microsoft to say ''Thanks for your commitment''... thanks for sharing your technical knowledge with others, thanks for helping others in ...

  • 24 Hours of PASS next week, pre-con preview style

    I will be doing my Characteristics of a Great Relational Database, which is a session that I haven’t done since last PASS. When I was asked about doing this Summit Preview version of 24 hours of PASS, I decided that I would do this session, largely because it is kind of light and fun, but also because it is either going to be the basis of the end ...

  • Speaking at PASS 2012… Exciting and Scary… As usual…

    Edit: As I reread this, I felt I should clarify.. As usual refers mostly to the ''Scary'' part. I have a lot of stage fright that I have to work through. And it is always exciting to be picked.   I have been selected this year at the PASS Summit 2012 to do two sessions, and they are both going to be interesting. Pre-Con: Relational ...

  • OT: Thank You, Microsoft

    cross-posted from AndyLeonard.me… Each April 1st for the past five years, I have been honored to receive an email from Microsoft informing me I have been recognized as a SQL Server MVP. Tomorrow will be different. Back in January – when I wrote this – I requested Microsoft not consider me for renewal. I have enjoyed serving as a Microsoft MVP. I ...

  • “Do Philanthropy Where You Are”

    That call to action from Microsoft Leadership struck a chord with many in the SQL Server MVP Community. The response? SQL Server MVP Deep Dives, released at the PASS Summit 2009. Proceeds from the sale of that book continue to go to War Child International. It hasn’t stopped there, though. This year, SQL Server MVPs have completed SQL Server MVP ...

  • Time for the yearly Microsoft Pilgrimage known as the MVP Summit

    One of the most fun events of the year is the MVP Summit if perhaps for no other reason than my preparation for it is packing a suitcase. No presentations to write, prepare for, nothing. No activities that I have to do anything more than show up with my 2 shovels. One for the amazing amounts of knowledge that will be flowing from the Microsoft ...

  • An honor to be among the SQL Server MVPs

    I just found out last night that I was officially awarded SQL MVP.  I am honored to be among those that I respect and admire.  I don’t contribute for the recognition and as a former MVP Lead I know the caliber of those that contribute to the SQL Server community, and even those that are not MVP, I am grateful for those of you who have ...

  • What will I be doing at PASS?

    I felt horrible last year when I missed the MVP Deep Dives book signing at PASS.  I took part instead in a focus group that ran a little late, and still regret it.  So this year I wanted to get a jump on where I'll be, and this will help me stick with it.  So if you'll be at PASS and want to track me down to meet me, catch up, or ...
