After the reviews last week about Rob Farley’s chapter in the Deep Dives book, we talked over email a bit. I had the chance to sit down and ask him a few questions that Jeremy and I came up with. I hope that you enjoy them. What amazes me the most is the fact that Rob did not start as a database guy, not only did he not start as a database guy, but actually chose to pass up the opportunity to take a database class. Another item that really grabbed me was how Rob hires consultants that he has, see the product is growing so large that few know everything about SQL Server to the skill of being able to learn new things is just as positive and know the basics.

Don’t forget, the SSWUG Ultimate vConference is just around the corner. I have been talking to speakers for the last couple weeks and I believe they are as excited as I am. What an event this is going to be. Here is a tip. If you want to get some additional money of the full conference pass look on the session’s page, find a speaker or two and search their blogs, they were given a VIP Code that will get you some additional money off.
This past week we had the Colorado Springs SQL Server User Group meeting. Please become a fan on the facebook page. The Denver group also met this week. I can tell you there is some discussions about a really excited event coming to this area around the first week of June.
