Welcome to My New Blog!

Hi, and welcome to my blog!

I’m Mike Scalise. I’ve been interested in starting a blog for a long time and I’ve finally carved out the time to set one up. My plan is to post fairly regularly about various topics of interest, including but not limited to: SQL Server, databases, computer languages, project management, and weightlifting.

My goal for this blog is not only to have a platform to voice my thoughts and ideas, but also to provide you with resources that will make your life easier and help further advance each of the aforementioned areas.

Thanks for looking and stay tuned!

In the meantime, you can find me on social media via the links listed at the bottom of this page.
