Long time no post

It's been a while since my last blog post, with good reason as September saw the arrival of my first child - a beautiful baby girl. It did mean I had to miss SQLBits 7 up in York, but of course that pales into insignificance when comparing to becoming a Dad for the first time! Besides, there's always SQLBits 8...(*cough* bring it to the south coast! *cough*). Now I'm back at work after paternity leave and I'm starting to get back in the swing of things.

Southampton SQL Server User Group, interested?

Last week, I saw a tweet by @tsqltidy trying to gauge interest for an SQL Server UserGroup in Hampshire. This is something I thought about earlier this year, so I'm very keen to show my support for this as I think this area is calling out for something more local. I have travelled up to the Microsoft Campus in Reading to attend a UG there, but would be great to have a UG a bit more local. If you're in Hampshire and think you'd be interested, please show your interest! Either ping me via email/twitter (@AdaTheDev) or, if you're on LinkedIn and in the "UK SQL Server User Group" group there's a discussion in there started by Neil Hambly (@Neil_Hambly). I for one am hoping that the birth of my daughter will be followed by the birth of a new local SQL Server User Group!

  1. Adrian, congrats on successfully extending your family, I hope you are getting in the routine by now?! SQLBits was good and there will be videos of the sessions if you want to see anything in particular (I'd recommend any of the Buck Woody sessions!).

    Good luck with the user group too.
