After SQL PASS Summit 2013

Just went to me first SQL PASS Summit and I have returned with a lots of new ideas for my work environment at UCBI and inspired to start this blog. I love everything SQL and hiking so I deiced to name it sqlhiker. So SQL Pass  what do I say? My first thoughts were this was going to be another tech conference. My first impressions after day one of precon I learned this was a family. The #sqlfamily is all about helping each other and the #summit13 really opened my eyes.

I got to visit with Wayne Valdes my previous co-worker at Pinch A Penny.  I meet Mladen Prajdić developer of SSMS Tools Pack. He told me version 3.0 would be out every soon.

Microsoft released SQL Server 2014 CTP2

This is my first post on and I am hoping to follow it up with many of the things I love about SQL and Hiking.
