What do you want to see on Simple Talk?

At Simple-Talk, we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to present practical technical content to our readers, and to stimulate discussion. Whilst sharpening our pencils, we dream of capturing some of the glorious, anarchic pooling of ideas and creativity that one finds in the open source communities.


From the ultra-practical Workbenches, to the “what you need to know rather than want to know” style of the Crib Sheets, to the condensed ‘bullet-point’ directness of the new Soup-to-Nuts series, we’ve developed and introduced several different styles of articles in order to help people learn new SQL Server skills.


However, we’re aware that we could always be doing more – and we’d like to hear your suggestions for additional things you want to see on Simple-Talk.


  • Are there different styles of article that you’d like to see?
  • Should we be experimenting with different types of content altogether (book reviews? software reviews?…)
  • Are there ways we could refine our existing content and styles?

What do you think? Add your suggestions below… we’ll be offering Simple-Talk goodie bags, including the collectable, executive-style, Red Gate USB dongle, to the three best suggestions. Winners will be announced in the 26th June newsletter.
