From Fear to Confidence – Learn the Art of Influence

Chad Crawford, Distinguished Database Engineer Henry Schein One

Do you live in fear that future changes in technology will render your skill and experience obsolete? Are your traditional SQL Server installations are slowly being replaced by NoSQL, Docker, and Linux, and you are afraid you will be replaced or your influence reduced? Hopefully, co-workers ask for your opinion before making any changes in production. When they do, how do you decide if it’s a good move or not?

About Chad:
Chad Crawford is an MCM and Principal Database Engineer with 19 years' experience in database architecture, development, and administration. He has worked in the manufacturing, health care, and consulting industries, primarily focusing on design, performance, and high-availability of customer facing SAAS systems. He loves teaching and sharing new ideas, and created a custom training course that helped dozens of coworkers prepare for certification exams. He speaks regularly for users groups and SQLSaturday, and leads the Utah County SQL Users Group. When he isn’t optimizing a query or analyzing performance tests, you will find him running, tweaking a ham radio, or looking for a new strategy board game.
