I started this blog in 2013 during my first consulting job. In 2014, I joined BlueGranite, which is where I have been for the last 4 years. The knowledge gained while working with them has been the inspiration for a lot of the content on this blog. It has truly been a pleasure to work at BlueGranite. Work is fun when your leadership team is trustworthy and transparent and open to feedback, and your coworkers are smart and motivated and want to help you learn. I can’t express how much I appreciate the professional relationships and friendships formed during my time with them.
But an interesting opportunity presented itself to me, and I have decided to take it.
Today is my first day working for Denny Cherry & Associates! I’m excited to be working with Denny (B|T), Joey (B|T), Kerry (B|T), Monica (B|T), John (B|T), and Peter (T). I’ve known the consultants at Denny Cherry & Associates for years through the SQL Community. My chats with them at conferences and on twitter demonstrated their incredible SQL and Azure knowledge, and I can’t wait to learn from them. I might even teach them a thing or two about BI/Analytics. I feel very fortunate to work for a company that values and encourages participation in the technical community. There are five Microsoft MVPs (including me), and all 6 consultants are speakers and bloggers. DCAC does a healthy mix of implementations, migrations, health checks, support, and training. They have completed many interesting and impactful Azure projects, which was a big draw for me.
Otherwise, things should be business as usual for me: work from home with the bulldog and a little travel as needed. I’ll continue to blog here in my free time with new coworkers and projects to serve as my inspiration.
