(SFTW) SQL Server Links 17/01/14

Good reads from around the Web. Smart Coffee

It’s Something For The Weekend(SFTW) time, I hope you’ve had a great week.

Those rather nice chaps over on the Toad World Community have only gone and made yours truly their SQL Pro of the Month. Far too generous an accolade.

Here’s your weekly roundup of SQL Server Blog Posts, News and Technology Stuff. Enjoy….

From the SQL Server blogs

Book of the week: The Phoenix Project: A Novel about IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win – This week Grant Fritchey was waxing on about the benefit of DevOps and he’s right! His post reminded me of a fantastic book I read last year that really helped me to understand the business angle for adopting a DevOps philosophy, never-mind the technical/implementation details. It’s not the Development team you need to convince of the benefits. This a great book for you senior Data Professionals to consider.
