  • PASS Summit 2012, Slide Decks

    Ok, I have to admit the painful truth. I'm reliably slow to the finish line. This year, I got my slides into PASS HQ by the skin of my teeth, the weekend before the event was to begin.  Although I could say with a straight face ''I uploaded my slides!''.  I have to be honest that I wasn't surprised when many of my attendees said that ...

  • Come See Me. I'll Probably Be Just Down the Street Soon!

    Even though I've recently changed jobs, I'll still be speaking at a lot of SQL events across the country and internationally.  There are still a few trips that I've yet to finalize, in particular with the fine folks in Houston, run by my friend Nancy Hidy (blog | twitter), and my friends in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, run by ...

  • Everybody Needs a Test Harness

    When you're developing new Transact-SQL code or modifying some existing code, do you just launch directly into programming? I know that I did just that, for years. It wasn't until I was trying to performance tune some existing code that I realized I hadn't actually taken caching of data and execution plans into account. So all those modified ...

  • New on "Database Trends & Applications"

    In last month's column, ''2012 Might Really Be the End of the World as We Know It,'' I described a number of major developments in the IT industry that are likely to disrupt the life of database professionals everywhere.  I categorize those four disruptors - virtualization, cloud computing, solid state drives (SSD), and advanced ...

  • From SQLMag Tool Time Column: SSMS Plug-in News

    I first wrote about Mladen Prajdic's excellent tool in my Tool Time column at SQL Server Magazine HERE. The tool is a nice plug-in to SSMS and definitely worth having. If you’ve never installed it or have only installed an older version, but sure to pick up the newest release. Here’s Mladen’s press release complete with hyperlink for the ...

  • And the winner of the SQLBits8 Pub Quiz is... [drumroll please]

    Carley had to rescue me from the bingo set! Wow - what a great trip through Europe! Normally, I bounce back after a day of downtime when dealing with jet lag. Basically, when we land in whatever eastward time zone I've flown to, I stay up until a reasonable bed time. Then, on the following day I'm usually ready to go at full speed. I'm ...

  • How Do You SKU?

    I’d like your opinion here. Follow my logic here for a moment as I walk through a couple rhetorical questions.  Have you ever had a friend developed an application entirely on SQL Server Developer Edition?  (Not that YOU would ever do such a thing, but maybe you know someone who has. Right?) And has your friend’s IT department ...

  • Education and Career Resources from Microsoft and the Community

    Sometimes I'm timely in getting the news out on useful resources.  And, other times, I'm a bit slower on the draw.  As I told my friends back at New Year's Day, ''As an official member of the Procrastinators Club, welcome to 2008!''  On the other hand, it's always good to remind folks of great resources that are still ...

  • Azure, a Beautiful Color, and So Much More...

    Windows and SQL Azure Resources Cloud computing is more than just the latest buzz word in the IT trade papers. It is a remarkable paradigm shift with as much potential to ''turn over the apple cart'' of IT computing as client-server had for the world of mainframe and minicomputers. If you're not spending time to learn about cloud computing, ...

  • My Last "Catch-Up" Post for 2010 Content

    I did a lot of writing in 2010. Unfortunately, I didn't do a good job of keeping all of that writing equally distributed throughout all of the channels where I'm active. So here are a few more posts from my blog, put on-line during the months of November and December 2010, that I didn't get posted here on 1. It's Time to ...
