I've been travelling a lot again lately and while I was in Beijing, our SolidQ Journal team released the November edition, so I'm a bit late letting you know about it. In addition to the regular columnists, the November edition brought articles from some of our mentors that were presenting at the PASS summit.
In the BI area this month, we have a feature from Davide Mauri that covers a new dimension loading tool (DLPC) which is available for free download to SolidQ Journal readers and PASS attendees. (Remember that the journal is also free). In the interview section, we've captured Dejan Sarka's "5 words of wisdom" on database development. Another of our data mining gurus Mark Tabladillo shows how the scientific method can be applied to unsupervised data mining models.
In the PowerShell corner, Herbert Albert and Gianluca complete their series on using PowerShell for database restores and Gilberto Zampatti describes how to use PowerShell to help install SharePoint.
From the relational world, I've described my thoughts on using unique constraints vs unique indexes and Eladio Rincion has written the first column on a new series describing the practical uses of Extended Events.
Finally, from the community area, Douglas McDowell has written about user groups and the SQL community.
I hope you'll enjoy reading it. You'll find the journal at http://www.solidq.com/sqj.
