What is this blog?
Most of the content here will be focused on Business Intelligence, SQL Server, and data. This blog is several things.
- External memory: A place to save things so that I can remember them later.
- Helping hand: A place to share content that others may find useful.
- Self learning: A forcing function for me to learn new technology.
Let’s break it down a bit more.
I have used and still do use OneNote to save things so that I can remember them later. However, I have found that I tend to throw everything into a OneNote notebook and quite often I will forget what’s in there. I’ll do the same web search for the same thing and hope to find the same information that helped me last time. By posting an article here I’ll be forced to write it up better and then when I do the web search I may just find my own post!
For the most part, I am a self-educated developer. I did not go to college or any ‘boot camp’ to learn how to do anything that I know. Many others posted articles on their own blogs about this stuff and I am eternally grateful for them. I hope to be able to contribute to the success of others in the Business Intelligence market.
I am an expert procrastinator. I plan to post regularly here and I will have to learn new things in order to explain them well. I have already had to learn many new things just to get to the point where I can publish this site!
To wrap it up, this blog is a place for me that I hope others can benefit from.
