  • Blogging from the SQL Connections keynote

    Quentin Clark is on stage right now talking about high-level SQL Server stuff.  I think I can take this time to explain how Connections is different from PASS (at least according to my first 15 minutes of experience here). Clearly, SQL Server is not the priority of the Connections family - probably mostly due to the success of PASS.  ...

  • Will SQL Azure make Normalization popular again?

    Normalization should be very popular and widespread. Unfortunately I can say that the 99% of developers that work with database (and thus design the database schema) don’t know it. Even worse they don’t even realize that normalization is a key point in application development. AFAIK developers and project managers don’t care too much of ...

In his own words: I describe a possible evolution of Public Clouds into Planetary IT complexes, where billions of ...

  • Tweetpoll and RESTful Northwind go bye-bye

    On 31st January 2010 Windows Azure and SQL Azure will transition to becoming services that you have to pay for which means that my three small demos that are hosted up there are going to disappear hence I thought now would be a good time to review before they are digitally ground into dust. Tweetpoll Tweetpoll was a demo that I wrote back in ...

  • Backing up Azure Table Storage

    I read with interest today a blog post from Yaron Goland entitled Do I need to backup/journal my Windows Azure Table Store? in which he spoke about the need to do exactly that i.e. Backup any data that you put into Windows Azure Table storage. Yaron's assertion was not that we need to protect ourselves from Azure failures, instead he asserted ...

  • PASS Keynote, Wednesday: "Delivering on Our Data Platform Vision"

    The keynote today was delivered by Ted Kummert, Corporate VP, Data and Storage Platform Division at Microsoft.  Before Ted started, Wayne Snyder showed up on stage, sitting on a hog and surrounded by smoke or dry ice or something.  He talked about how PASS has grown over the past year in several areas:chapters (136)membership ...
