What Are You Thankful For?
It's almost Thanksgiving time here in the United States – that wonderful holiday where families and friends gather to share a meal and give thanks for all our many immaterial blessings. (And then for maximum irony, we head out the following day to battle each other in stores for heavily-discounted electronics while avoiding being trampled to death.)
One common tradition is to go around the table on Thanksgiving and have each person say what they're thankful for. To gather all our #sqlfamily and friends around a dinner table would be an immense undertaking (and the buffet line would be super long). Instead, let's do it blog-style. Jason Strate did this a few years ago with great results, and the community has changed a lot since then. I think it's time for a reboot, and I'm happy to host.
So what are you thankful for? Your family? The wonderful people in your life? Your sweet new smartphone? The fact that you deep fried a turkey last year and didn't burn your house down? There are no wrong answers. Whatever you'd like to share, write a blog post about it and link back to this one, much like T-SQL Tuesday. (And if you want to help me out even more, please leave a link to it in the comments!) Whatever I see by Sunday 30 November I'll cover in a recap post.
