Recently I was at the St. Louis SQL Server User Group giving my Performance Tuning Made Easy talk. The talk was broadcast live. I didn’t know it was going to be done live until I arrived, otherwise I would have told people about it beforehand. With the live broadcast came the ability for participants to chat with each other. I, however, could not respond in the chat room, because I was giving my talk.
After the talk was done I was given the transcript of the chat. Inside there was this gem:
“Thanks for all ur work Tom, thanks to u I’ll either be a full time DBA next month or a full time SA (Citrix) in an enterprise level environment, ur book and SQLSAT talk were a big part of that jump”
