Almost a year ago, in November 2017, I moved back into a more technical role at Stack Overflow and became a Database Administrator. During this time, I have wanted to relaunch my blog, as it’s been over three years since I really wrote anything (yes, I’m terrible).

Well, that time has finally come.

After spending a few weeks, looking at various options to replace Wordpress, I finally decided on using Hugo and Netlify. Hugo was incredibly easy to set up and Netlify deploys my changes automatically when I push to GitHub. Additionally, I moved away from and am now using This new URL seems fitting, as I love the PIVOT function in SQL Server, and I seem to change things a lot. I have no plans on moving away from being a DBA any time soon, so my plan is it to write about the SQL Server issues we deal with at Stack Overflow, as well other SQL things.
