A Day Full of Possibilities

As you may have read by now, I am leaving my current position and joining SQLskills.  I am thrilled to be joining the team and look forward to working with Paul, Kimberly, Jonathan, Joe and Glenn.  I expect to end every day utterly exhausted because of all the new things I’ve seen and learned.  I also expect to get fired much less often than Jonathan. 🙂  However, I admit that leaving my current position is bittersweet.

For the past nine years I have worked for an amazing company, and with a remarkable group of people.  My tenure, and my thanks, warrants a separate post, which will come later.  I would recommend my company to anyone – they have supported and encouraged me in all my endeavors, and I have grown more than I originally thought possible.

I have gained a lot of experience in my current position, and while I have seen a lot, I haven’t seen enough.  With SQLskills I will have the opportunity to see diverse systems and I will continue to work with and help clients, which I have always enjoyed.  I will continue to write and present.  And I will work with some of the very best people in the SQL Community.  Learn, solve problems, teach, and write.  Does it get any better?

I will be spending the month of July wrapping up current projects and making it as smooth of a transition as possible.  August 1 will be my first day as a SQLskills employee, and I will be attending IE2 in Seattle the week of August 13th.  Let me know if I will see you there!

It is time for the next step, and I know that SQLskills is a great fit for me.  I will be forever grateful to my current company and my co-workers for the part they have played in making me who I am today.  I am excited to start my next adventure with SQLskills.  As Calvin said in Watterson’s last post, “Let’s go exploring!”
