BrentOzar.com is Turning 17 Years Old.

I registered it before then, and it used to be a static HTML site, but I consider the birthday to be the first published blog post from May 7, 2002. A few fun stats:

  • Brent your apartment looks like the same one my wife and I shared at about the same time. It was a converted unit that was previously a butcher shop and had an addition put on front (so it had a big bay window between the kitchen and the living area). Awesome picture. Thanks for all the tools, training, insights and especially laughs over the years.

  • I’ve not been following for the whole time, but for several years at least. I think your site is a great example of consistency over a long period of time paying dividends 🙂

    Wishing you many more years of blog posts and projects 😀

  • Congrats Brent. I moved from Developer/AccidentalDBA to full time DBA around 10 years ago and first thing I did was look for free tools to help me out. SpBlitz has been on every server I’ve built or managed since, along with each of the extra Blitz tools as they evolved.
    Keep doing what you do!

  • This is great, but it seems the discount won’t work for the Team season pass to the recorded sessions. Is that still something that you’re offering?

    Reply
  • Hi, Does the 50% discount apply to EU sales of the the consultant toolkit? I couldn’t see a way to apply the coupon code.
