Using your #Echo Dot with your smarphone's hotspot. - http://www.drewslair.com/2016/11/alexa-echo-dot-portable/ #Alexa

"MySQL Explained" broke sales records during May and remains the #1 MySQL book on Amazon.com! You don't have to be a tech guru or spend lots of money to understand database design. Knowing how your data is stored is essential to truly understanding computers and there are plenty of free tools like MySQL with which to learn. "MySQL Explained" is the book that's written to help you learn what you need to know!

Story
Tagline
Software developer and consultant based in Ocala, FL.
Introduction
Originally from Massachusetts, I've lived in Florida since '85 and worked my way into an I.T. career mostly on self-training and initiative.  First impressions would tell you that most of my life revolves around technology in some way and the gadgets are taking over but there's a lot more going on beneath the surface. For more information on me and my interests, check out my other sites, ComeauSoftware.com and Drewslair.com.
