Wow, itâ€™s been just under two years since my previous post. Iâ€™ve had a couple of people ask about my blog, and why Iâ€™ve not posted. The good news is, Iâ€™m still around, and still working hard. Itâ€™s been a busy couple of years, but the highlights have included:
- Organising SQL Saturday Melbourne (#296) in 2014
- Organising and speaking at SQL Saturday Melbourne (#65) in 2015
- Speaking at SQL Saturday Auckland (#186) â€“ I can now claim to be an international speaker!
- Working as an Oracle DBA. Although there was a pretty solid learning curve, Oracle and SQL Server are similar, and I find I enjoy both, although SQL Server still holds my heart.
- Volunteering in the Victorian State Emergency service. While not technical, working as a storm, flood and rescue worker has been intensely rewarding.
My list of blog post ideas is currently sitting at 51 items, so thereâ€™s no shortage of content to come!
Welcome back, Jim! I hope at least one of those 51 blog post ideas involves cats in some way…..
