The Art of SQL Server Database Administration, Development, and Career Skills for the Technically Minded
I’ve gotten really bad about regular posting. I have a few excuses. One, my job in my professional life has changed considerably. I’m now working across a much wider swath of data platform and analytics meaning I don’t get to focus on pure DBA stuff much anymore. Also I keep getting pulled further into management and strategy which is both new, interesting, and challenging all at the same time. It’s all been voluntary which helps.
You’d think I’d have a whole bunch of new stuff to write about but I’m in more learn mode these days. In other words, any blog time I get is consumption not production.
As for what time I do get to teach and share I’ve been trying to focus on Pluralsight. I really like the format. Having an editor is amazingly helpful. Also, I feel like there is a much broader audience. I hope to stay active out there for a long time to come. It’s where I still get to be a DBA!
What does this mean for the SQLJudo blog? I plan on keeping it around. I may make the occasional post but the regularity of posting is not going to be there. The format may become more of a webpage than a blog. I have some branding changes in mind so you may see some changes there also. Finally, I’ve let the monthly challenges slip to the point that I have to admit that it’s just too much to try and fit into an ever filling schedule. So, I’m officially retiring that string of posts.
I hope to still do the occasional SQL Saturday. I mean to keep up with all the wonderful friends I’ve made in the SQL world. I’m not going anywhere, you can still reach me on twitter ( @SQLJudo ). You all rock!!!
