Pass Summit 2017, 1st Day, Also Known as HumpDay

I’ve plenty of rest after arriving in Seattle yesterday to get my registration for Pass Summit, attended the Women in Technology Happy Hour and then received my Idera ACE!

My Summer of SQL

I know that right sidebar on my blog has an AWFUL lot of Microsoft events on it.  There’s so many, I’ve begun to use the hashtag #MySummerOfSQL due to it.  For those of you that follow me with Oracle, it doesn’t mean that I’m leaving the Oracle community- not even close.

SQL Server on Linux

I thought I’d do something on Oracle this week, but then Microsoft made an announcement that was like an early Christmas present-  SQL Server release for Linux.

Optimizer Compatibility, Short Pants and Hot Sauce

OK, so I’m all over the map, (technology wise) right now.  One day I’m working with data masking on Oracle, the next it’s SQL Server or MySQL, and the next its DB2.

My First Microsoft Pass Summit Conference

It’s Friday and the last day of my first Summit conference.

I’ll be attending my very first Pass Summit next week and I’m really psyched!

The Rosetta Stone of Database Platforms

This is a living document that I will continue to update and will add new database platforms to as I go along in my career.  I spend a lot of time translating database platforms I’ve worked in for all tiers of the technical business.  It just seems natural that we might need a location on the web where that information is kept.

EM13c Monitoring Non-Oracle Databases

This last week I presented at Great Lakes Oracle Conference, (GLOC16) and the discussion on monitoring of non-Oracle databases came up while we were on the topic of management packs, how to monitor usage and what ones were required to monitor non-Oracle databases.
