  • re: PASS Summit Attendance “Advice”

    Chris: If you have horrible feet like I do (and a little extra pressure on them to boot!) it is a really tiring affair. I watch people heading out for a night of who knows what with amazement as about 12 hours of PASSing it and I could pretty much fall asleep on a park bench in the rain. Lisa: Agreed!

  • PASS Summit Attendance “Advice”

    Wow, it is fall again, and in a large percentage of the minds of SQL Community members, that means that the PASS Summit is here again. I have been to all of the Summits save the first one, and honestly it has become one of the highlights of my nerd year. I have learned a tremendous amount about SQL, made a lot of real friends, and gained a taste ...

  • re: SQL Saturday Birmingham #328 Database Design Precon In One Week

    Thanks! Just wishful thinking since I will be on vacation that day (which is the week leading up to Orlando's SQL Saturday where I will attend a precon.. a far more fun task with far less prep!

    On&nbsp;*August 22, I will be doing my ''How to Design a Relational Database'' pre-conference session in Birmingham, Alabama. You can see the abstract here if you are interested, and you can sign up there too, naturally. At just $100, which includes a free ebook copy of my database design book, it is a great bargain and I totally promise it will ...

  • How In-Memory Database Objects Affect Database Design: Hybrid Code

    In my first attempts at building my code, I strictly went with either native or on-disk code. I specifically wrote the on-disk code to only use features that worked in-memory. This lead to one majorly silly bit of code, used to create system assigned key values. How would I create a customer number that was unique. We cant use the Max(value) + 1 ...

  • re: PASS Summit Abstract Feedback

    I would also suggest using the comments if you read it and realize that from an abstract point of view you like what you are saying, but you want to spell it out a bit more to the reviewer in a less formal way. &nbsp; For the 100 level thing, that happened to me two years ago on a trigger session I presented. The night before, I see that it was ...
  • re: Developing New Speakers

    Good stuff, and I totally agree. If I can speak (a socially awkward person with serious speaker fright; and I was a LOT worse 13 years ago!), anyone can. I was kind of forced into it by a manager of mine who had us all write abstracts and submit them for CA World one year. I got accepted to speak about ERWin macros. As much as I hated it, I also ...

  • How In-Memory Database Objects Affect Database Design: Uniqueness

    This part is part of an ongoing series of blogs I am writing while preparing to give a presentation based on the prefix of this blog's title. It is a work in progress as I explore the effects of the new in-memory model. I would love comments that tell me that I am wrong (especially if it turns out that I am!) The first issue that arose in my ...

  • re: How In-Memory Database Objects Affect Database Design: Or does it?

    Actually there will be many more parts. I have a few earlier posts that set up the design, and here I am setting up the scenario that I am going to try testing. In the next day or two, I will be posting about how changing these tables to in-memory tables affected the outcome of my tests, and start to ruminate on what I will do next. I will edit ...
