Last Weeks Top “Reading” Links #31

2012-01-013For those that follow me on twitter (@StrateSQL), you’ll know that throughout the day I tweet out some links of things I find interesting.  These tweets include “Reading” in the message and are items I’ve read over the past few days, usually after hours when sharing would be less than useful, and spaced out to avoid spamming.  The content of the links usually pertain to SQL Server, technology, and career topics; which I think others would find useful.

Most Popular Link

The most popular item tweeted out last week had nothing to do with SQL Server, but it is seriously cool.  I would really love to get my hands on one of the cameras for a night at SQL Karaoke… the video might actually be steady then.

Along with the top link, here are the top twenty items relating to SQL Server, technology and careers that were sent out last week. Usually, I do a top ten, but I really like the items that were in the top twenty.
