I’ve said enough about this book in the first three words of this post. I was putting it off for a while, and now there are no excuses.

I don’t do DBA stuff at work, still I enjoy learning about things that impact me; like release management, auditing, etc., This book has it all. I hope to apply the practices I learn from this book in my playground – dev environment, that is.

I’m Not Attending #sqlpass Summit 2012 and I’m Sorry For Myself

I really wanted to attent PASS Summit this year, I’ve never attended before. I was preparing myself mentally since the last summit, but things didn’t work out. Life happened. I’ve some personal obligations that I need to take care. I can’t talk much about these obligations here, but I can say I’ll be a happy man if I complete them. So, I decided to trade Summit – not an easy decision though.

I know I’m going to miss out on a lot of things, Pre-Con Session: SSIS Design Patterns the most. Hopefully, I’ll be able to attend next year and get to meet all the awesome SQL people.

You, my friend, if you have a chance and haven’t registered yet, don’t wait. From what I’ve heard and learnt, it will be an amazing experience. Here is the registration link.
