Recovering from Disaster - a five-point plan

Too often, a disaster recovery plan can look a little like it was put together by the underpants gnomes.

Phase 1: Take database backups

Phase 2: ???

Phase 3: Recovered from disaster

Starting with taking backups isn’t the worst idea (can’t say the same for collecting underpants), but this..

First Fix and Second Fix

When DBAs are troubleshooting issues, solutions are sometimes applied in the heat of a critical incident which solve the problem, which are then walked away from because the issue has been “fixed”. With experience and a better understanding of the broader issue of long-term solutions, you..

Public Speaking - My Favourite Nightmare

Speaking at events isn’t something that comes naturally to me and I think many people who work in the tech industry find computers easier to interact with than humans. Nevertheless, I think public speaking is a really worthwhile skill; whether to small groups or large conferences it’s important..

Learn with Coeo at SQL Bits

SQL Bits is a highlight of the year for European data professionals and this February's conference schedule is shaping up to be an exciting one.

Musings of a Working Mum

Since becoming a Mum I’ve found working life hard. Really hard. Don’t get me wrong, I expected disruption and compromise but what I didn’t expect was the overwhelming feeling of guilt. Guilt I impose upon myself, I’m sure, but it’s constant. I'm pretty sure that the guilt that comes along with..

I have received CVs tailored to a different role; CVs that are not current or have gaps between jobs with no explanation; applicants who have not included a cover letter..

Creating an environment where people love to work

As the HR Manager at Coeo I’m often asked what it takes to create a great environment where people love to work. This question is not as straightforward as sounds because we’re all unique and motivated by different things at different times in our careers. If we get married, buy a house, have..

Hey all, I'm Richard and I've recently joined Coeo as a Cloud Consultant, working with Al Walderman. My background is largely System Center and Wintel but at Coeo, I'm here to focus on helping customers understand, adopt and develop with Microsoft Azure technologies.

PASS Summit 2016 (Joe gets lost in Seattle)

Considering that I have been working with SQL Server since 1997, this is the first chance I have had to attend the PASS Summit in Seattle, so I have been waiting for this for a long time! And I was not disappointed. I have been to many SQL Bits, SQL Saturdays, and User Groups in the UK, but this is..
