Another year has come to an end. Being faithful to the “tradition” of posting the last day of every year my selected tweets for the year that ends, here I am again, posting the “Selected Tweets of Year 2013!”.

2013 was remarkable, especially when it comes to Community. Interacting with you, the SQL Server Community through all available channels is a unique experience as is it is with this interaction we all become better, not only in Technology but as human beings too.

2013 was a special year for me as my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby girl! Even though now I get less sleep I have an additional source of inspiration! πŸ™‚ That’s why I published my first two e-Books in this year!

In October 2013 I published “Tuning SQL Server” and in December “Administering SQL Server“, all part of my series “The SQL Server and .NET eBook Series“.

Another year has come to an end. Throughout the difficulties of our times we stay strong. We keep on trying for the best. We keep on following our passion thus maintaining a strong Technical Community. The one thing I can say for sure after all these years of community activity, is that it is something that makes you a better person.

2014 can be an even better year because you know, it is us, the people that can make this happen. As a good friend of mine once said: “Change the World, or go home!” (cheers Karl πŸ™‚

It is a privilege to communicate with you, via all possible channels like blogs, forums, offline and online events, conferences and of course, Twitter! Here are the tweets!
