Happy National Lobster 🦞 Day!

“And here I go again on my own… Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known”

This week we continued where we last left off the previous week as we continued exploring the depths of SQL Server 2019. Last week, we just merely scratched 💅 the surface of SQL Server 2019 as we dove🤿 into IQP and the improvements made to TempDB. This week we tackled Microsoft’s most ambitious SQL Server offering to date in SQL Server 2019 Big Data Clusters (BDC). When I first thought…

“Catch the mist, catch the myth…Catch the mystery, catch the drift”

L’shanah tovah!

So after basking in last week’s accomplishment of passing the AZ-900: Microsoft Azure Fundamentals certification exam this week we decided that we need come down from the clouds. Now, grounded we knew exactly where we needed to go. For those who know me well, I have spent a large part of my career supporting and Engineering solutions for Microsoft SQL Server. Microsoft released SQL Server 2019 back in November of the same year.

For the most part, we really haven’t spent too much on our journey going…

Now they always say, ‘Congratulations’” 🎉🥳

Happy International🌎 Programmers’👩🏽‍💻day!

So last week we decided to get our Microsoft Azure fundies on. So naturally, it would only make sense to test out our knowledge🤓 and take the AZ-900: Microsoft Azure Fundamentals certification exam 📝.

So, this week we decided to go down that road 🚙 and I am happy 😊 to report we passed.

Ok, so besides picking up some additional flair to match our AWS Practitioner badge it does provide us with some additional street…

Taking care of business (every way)

Happy National Bow Tie 🎀Day!

So last week, we dusted ourselves off, climbed 🧗‍♂️ back up on our horse 🐎, and reconvened with our continuous learning adventures. To get ourselves warmed🔥 up we decided to renew our knowledge with PowerShell ⚡️🐚 but we still had some unfinished business to attend too. If you have been following our travels 🚀, you might remember earlier this month we hit a bump in the road. But just like the armless Black Knight 🛡🗡 from Monty Python and the Holy Grail it was just a mere “flesh wound”…

Happy Poet’s 📜 Day!

“I’ve been too long, I’m glad to be back”

So, after a 2-week hiatus we are glad to be back and all powered⚡️up and ready to get back on our continuous journey ✈️in learning. In our most recent learning, we have spent time🕰️ in the clouds ☁️☁️ (in particular AWS) so we thought we might circle⭕ back to an oldie but goodie with PowerShell⚡️🐚. Why PowerShell⚡️🐚 you might ask? That’s seems so yesterday. However, it’s still very much still today. Microsoft has been very much committed to PowerShell⚡️🐚 especially in regards to managing Windows. Every application…
