Dear Brent Ozar Unlimited readers: thanks for following me for three great years. I’m off on a new adventure, but I hope to see you at a user group, a SQL Saturday, or a conference in the future!
I’m leaving with a lot of great memories – and here are a few of my favorites from the last three years.
My first company retreat was also my first SQL Cruise!
I got to co-present my first full-day pre-con at PASS Summit with Brent, Jeremiah, and Kendra in 2013.
Body boarding at the company retreats in Mexico is always a blast.
We had awesome training weeks in Chicago in 2013 and 2014.
We ate at Little Goat on May the 4th. Or, Doug usually dresses up for nights out. You can decide.
And I’ll always fondly remember our mascot from Mexico: donk!
Kendra says: Jes has been amazing and fun to work with. But you can tell that from the pictures! We wish her all the best and are proud to have her as an alumnus.
Doug says: Thanks to you, Jes, I’ve learned a whole new repertoire of workplace-appropriate donkey jokes. (Not appropriate for other workplaces. Just this one.) We’re gonna miss you!
Jeremiah says: It’s been a blast working with Jes – for once I wasn’t the loudest person in the room! I’ll miss your energy and your love of log shipping.
Brent says: I can’t believe it’s been three years already since we first talked to Jes about the job – and in a coffee shop, of course. I’m so happy we got to be part of her journey, and I can’t wait to see what she does next.
