Well I’ve recently made a commitment to myself to start being a contributor to the SQL Server community to help encourage myself to grow as a database professional. As part of this new commitment I’ve started this blog and I’m speaking at SQL Saturday #97 here in Austin. I will be speaking on architecting no downtime databases. I hope to see everyone there and look forward to my first speaking engagement. I will update this site with my presentation and I will also publish it on the SQL Saturday site.
