Wow, it’s been just under two years since my previous post. I’ve had a couple of people ask about my blog, and why I’ve not posted. The good news is, I’m still around, and still working hard. It’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) – 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 there’s no shortage of content to come!

  1. Welcome back, Jim! I hope at least one of those 51 blog post ideas involves cats in some way…..
