Hey MSSQLDUDE fans! I'm migrating over to MSDN blogs now that I'm in a new group @ Microsoft. We focus on developers, which is why I chose MSDN over Technet for the home for the MSSQLDUDE blog. I'll cross-post for awhile, but then I'll use this MSDN home for all Microsoft-specific postings. Anything that falls outside that scope and is more personal opinion and observation, I'll keep @ http://mssqldude.wordpress.com/.

It's exciting to be back @ MSDN! I haven't maintained an MSDN blog since DBCF & MEC in 2009! http://blogs.msdn.com/b/makrom/.

For those new to MSSQLDUDE, you can come here for a variety of SQL Server topics, tips & tricks and links. Mostly, I focus on BI, DW, Cloud (Azure) and Big Data with a few posts on DBA stylings. For the most part, I stick with latest & greatest SQL Server technologies. There are plenty of excellent blogs out there on the previous versions of SQL Server that can help nearly every SQL Server DBA or developer.

Thanks! Best, Mark
