What is this blog about?
Hello and welcome to my tech blog, which is a place for me to store all my notes as I blog away as a software enthusiast.
My area of interest, or niche, very much revolves around Database Administration, so there will be a lot of RDMS related blog posts here, particularly on SQL Server. I spend a lot of time testing random features during my journey as a Database Administrator (DBA). This tech blog is a good place to store notes for personal reference. I do try my best to keep things accurate and informative for those landing on my pages via Google search too though.
If you want to know more about who’s writing this have a look at my about me page here.
I hope you find some of my posts useful and feel free to get in-touch. If anything I say is inaccurate or if you’d like to offer some general feedback please go ahead, I’d really appreciate it.
