As the door begins to knock I start to wonder who it can be. As I begin to open it the person on the other side asks if he can talk to Perfection. No, I replied, perfection isn’t here and will never be here.
That same concept is what this blog I started 4 years ago is all about. No, you will not find perfection. What you will find is a data professional who loves working with SQL server and views his everyday job as not really a job at all. I’ve learned over the years that I’m probably in that rare club who enjoys his job and what all he has to work with.
I work with a fantastic SQL Community and have met several interesting folks along the way. I enjoy talking and working alongside the vendors where I can, and offer feedback when asked. The many questions and collaborations that have been had this year from user groups, talks, sessions, presentations, conferences have been phenomenal and I am humbled by the response given to the SQL Professor.
While you won’t find perfection you will find a guy who will share with you some of the knocks, bumps and bruises; along with solutions to what he has faced along his SQL journey in hopes that it will benefit you and others.
You will find a data professional who will be continual learning so that he can share the solution with someone in need
…..and you will find a data professional who will help anywhere he can in hopes of growing the thing he has enjoyed so much being a part of ~ The SQL Community.
As we move into 2015 I am thankful for the people who have taught me that quality of my content is important and I will take that into 2015 and do my best to enhance The SQL Professor to new boundaries. This year has been a roller coaster of a ride, one that I am both humbled and thankful for. As the year draws nigh and me having some vacation days to take I decided to venture back over some of the past posts. These past few weeks, ever since getting back from PASS Summit, have been nothing short of hustling and bustling to and fro. I am thankful that the SQL Professor site has had a reach into many countries this year a nice increase from last year and the representation is noted below:
United StatesUnited Kingdom
South Africa Brazil
Russian Federation Switzerland
Poland New Zealand
Viet Nam Philippines
Chile Hong Kong
Puerto RicoCzech Republic
Costa Rica Malaysia
United Arab EmiratesCroatia
Republic of Korea Romania
Dominican Republic Bulgaria
Macedonia, the Former Yugoslav Republic
Tunisia Côte d’Ivoire
Iceland Sri Lanka
Papua New Guinea
Djibouti Cayman Islands
Solid increases have been gained since inception and I believe that is because of the content and the focus that has been put forth on it this past year. Thank you for a great year and I look forward to the journey of continual learning and sharing moving forward.
Enjoy the holidays and short work week; look forward to seeing you all again in 2015.
