Quick 6 month check – how are those learning goals going…?

So in January I wrote a blog post on some goals I had this year:

Some of my goals for 2019

It’s now July – how are things going?

I’m happy to say that I have indeed been doing a whole heap more on containers and have been using the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Admittedly this has had to be in my own spare time as I have found that my clients are not ready to embrace either containers or AKS for SQL Server yet.

In fact a fair chunk of my clients need help getting SQL Server tuned optimally….

But in my spare time I have been folding AKS into CI/CD pipelines and looking at as much as I can.

In fact I am speaking about AKS in the following places:

Data Platform Summit:

SQLSaturday Perth:
https://www.sqlsaturday.com/894/Sessions/Schedule.aspx

PASS Summit:
https://www.pass.org/summit/2019/Learn/SessionDetails.aspx?sid=92753

(As a slight aside I am also speaking at Redgate SQL in the City Summit at PASS (https://www.pass.org/summit/2019/Learn/SessionDetails.aspx?sid=92888) – which is a life goal achieved!!)

So 6 months in – I’ve been doing a fair bit of what I had planned to do. Which after a fairly tumultuous start to the year is a pretty good start.

Yip.
