ADHD and Certification Tests- A Tale of Disaster

I don’t talk too much about my Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, (ADHD) brain outside of the occasional squirrel joke and more often view it as a super power, but when it is a challenge, I think it’s important to share what we go through.  You can’t solve a problem if you don’t know it is one.

Broadening Your Audience

I spent this week speaking at two conferences that may not be familiar to my usual crowd:
Techwell StarEast Testing Conference in Orlando, FL
Interop ITX Data Conference in Las Vegas, NV

The Future of the DBA, #C18LV, Video 1

I’m starting to move towards doing more videos and hope to improve my video skills, (and maybe add a dance sequence, ya know, like the hip kids…)  Check out this post and please, do add comments, ask questions or just tell me what you think?

Have an awesome Wednesday and no, don’t comment on my consistent need to make a strange face at the beginning of a video… </p />
