I was asked to host a T-SQL Tuesday, and I accepted.
Once again, my fingers move a bit faster than my brain. “Sure, be happy to host one. Send me a date” flew out of my fingers before I thought through the implications. I’m happy to help the community, and I think Adam Machanic (Blog|Twitter) had a fantastic idea with the T-SQL Tuesday blog party, and I look forward to them every month.
But I’m busy, and this is a very busy time of year for the next month, with the hope that most of December will be quiet for me. It’s been a crazy year for me and I’m looking to try and better manage life next year.
Adam immediately responded to my email with a date, and I have December. I was thinking he’s a busy guy, and my mail might get lost in the shuffle. However it didn’t and I ended up with not only an acceptance, but a date that’s not too far in the future.
So I need a topic.
There are any number of topics out there, and after all, T-SQL Tuesday has only been around for a year. However I was somewhat stumped as to what a “good topic” will be. After all, I want this to be a good one.
The ones I’ve seen so far are:
- T-SQL Tuesday #001: Date/Time Tricks
- T-SQL Tuesday #002: A Puzzling Situation
- T-SQL Tuesday #003: Relationships
- T-SQL Tuesday #004: IO
- T-SQL Tuesday #005- Reporting
- T-SQL Tuesday #006: “What About BLOB?”
- T-SQL Tuesday #007: Summertime in the SQL
- T-SQL Tuesday #008: Gettin’ Schooled
- T-SQL Tuesday #009: Beach Time
- T-SQL Tuesday #010 – Indexes
- T-SQL Tuesday #011: Misconceptions
- T-SQL Tuesday #012 – Why are DBA skills necessary?
I’ve got a few ideas, and some work ahead of me to develop something in the next month around SQL Connections, SQL Saturday #59 and a week of family vacation. If you have any ideas of your own, don’t post them. Save them for your own T-SQL Tuesday and contact Adam to host one.
I’m not sure what will happen in November, and I’ll be jammed up with a post since I’ll be at Connections next week, so whether it’s the first Tuesday or second, I’ll be hustling a bit to participate.
