My Summer of SQL

I know that right sidebar on my blog has an AWFUL lot of Microsoft events on it.  There’s so many, I’ve begun to use the hashtag #MySummerOfSQL due to it.  For those of you that follow me with Oracle, it doesn’t mean that I’m leaving the Oracle community- not even close.

Fixing Development Mistakes from the Command Line with Delphix TimeFlow

How many times have you had a developer come to you and say, “I just did a bad thing in the database.  Can you recover from what I just did?”
