  • SQL Server MVP Deep Dives Vol 2 – get my chapter free

    Yes, the SQL book I was involved in two years ago has a sequel. In the first book, I wrote chapters 7 and 40, and was one of 53 MVPs that contributed. And the proceeds went to War Child. Yes, none of the MVPs who wrote, edited, etc, got any royalties – that all went to charity. This time, I wrote just one chapter (chapter 2), but there have been ...

  • Head in the Clouds–Eyes on the Books

    I normally post technical topics here on this blog, but I’m extending this post a bit to include a little professional development. Don’t worry; there’s some tech (and Distributed Computing tech, no less) in this post as well. I recently presented a few sessions on a “SQL Cruise” to Alaska (more on that here) and one ...

  • Computer books are dead. Well, some of them, anyway.

    I read a lot. I mean a LOT. It seems that computer professionals have much in common with medical professionals – we have to read in order to stay on top of our game.

  • Book Review: Oracle Database Administration for Microsoft SQL Server DBAs

    Working in mixed database environments is a very interesting challenge, both for DBAs and developers. If we already have experience with SQL Server, and need to work with Oracle, our SQL Server experience may be an advantage  - we already have a good handle on what an RDBMS should do (backups, restores, etc.). On the other hand, our ...

  • Managing Expectations

    If you're a business intelligence practitioner like me, you might have certain expectations from a book entitled Business Intelligence Success Factors: Tools for Aligning your Business in the Global Economy.
