Did you know about the free event AzureCon on Sept. 29th

Back in 2014, I work 3 months for Lixar, Ottawa Company, on the Azure platform. What was difficult was keeping up to date with all the new stuff coming out every week on the Azure platform.  In our case, keeping up to date made a big different because new features announced on Azure prevent us to write weeks of code. If you save weeks of coding, imagine home much $$$ you are saving in test.  Here your chance to keep up with all the changes on Azure by virtually attending the AzureCon on September 29th.

The Modern DBA

What is a modern DBA? Well that depend on what you are doing in your day to day job. The modern DBA is the guy that uses the right tools for the job.  SQL Server come with many tools (SSMS SSIS, SSRS) but these tools are not always the right tools for the job.
