It’s time for another T-SQL Tuesday. The brainchild of Adam Machanic (b|l|t), and designed to strengthen the SQL Server blogging community, T-SQL Tuesday gets a lot of bloggers posting about a specific theme, chosen by the host blogger (today, that’s me).

I signed up to host the T-SQL Tuesday for August back in March. I didn’t have an idea for a theme, but I figured that I had plenty of time to figure one out. However, everything I was coming up with really didn’t appeal to me for one reason or another. With less than a month to go, I realized that I had run up against a brick wall, and needed help. So, I tweeted for some help, and received many suggestions for possible topics. The one that appeals to me the best was from Shane O’Neill (@SOZDBA).

Brick Wall

Tell me about a time when you ran up against your own brick wall, and how you worked it out or dealt with it. Did you start working on a project only to find a brick wall that had been hidden? Was your brick wall:

  • A technological hurdle to overcome?
  • Brought about by your not having sufficient knowledge of the product?
  • A person?

Whatever you choose, tell us about a brick wall that you ran into and how you dealt with it (did you get help from someone/someplace? Wake up in the middle of the night with the solution?).

Most importantly, publish your post sometime on Tuesday, 2018-08-14 UTC time.

T-SQL Tuesday Rules

The T-SQL Tuesday rules are pretty straightforward; for the bloggers, the main subset of these are:

  1. Be on-topic.
  2. Use the T-SQL Tuesday logo (above), and link back to this post.
  3. Publish your post between 0000 and 2359 UTC on 2018-08-14.

Other helpful actions you can do

  • Trackbacks should work, but if they don’t, please put a link to your post in the comments section so I (and everyone else) can see your contribution!
  • Tweet about your post using the #tsql2sday hashtag
  • If you want to make it really hard for me to miss your post, add @DBAWayne to your tweet.
