  • SSIS Design Patterns, the Book

    For the past two years, I have had the honor and privilege or authoring SSIS Design Patterns alongside Jessica Moss, Michelle Ufford, Tim Mitchell, and Matt Masson. Publication of the book – like many projects of this scope – has been delayed. The current publication date is 27 Aug 2012 and I have high confidence in this date. I take ...

  • “Do Philanthropy Where You Are”

    That call to action from Microsoft Leadership struck a chord with many in the SQL Server MVP Community. The response? SQL Server MVP Deep Dives, released at the PASS Summit 2009. Proceeds from the sale of that book continue to go to War Child International. It hasn’t stopped there, though. This year, SQL Server MVPs have completed SQL Server MVP ...

  • SQL Server MVP Deep Dives Volume 2 : Operation Smile

    Two years ago, I was involved in a worthwhile project that produced a book called SQL Server MVP Deep Dives - a collection of chapters written by 50 or so fellow MVPs, assembled in a single volume and sold to the masses. The unique component of this project was that no author or editor took a single penny - most of the proceeds went to charity ...

  • New Book on the Query Optimizer

      A friend of mine Benjamin Nevarez has written a book on the inner workings of the Query Optimizer and it was just released. I read a preview and was definitely impressed so I expect the full version to be just as good. More details can be found here and it is available at Amazon here as well. I hope you enjoy it. Andy

  • Book Review: Poke the Box

    Introduction Seth Godin's latest book is called Poke the Box. I'm still reading it, but I have these thoughts to share: Initiate The theme of the book is to start something. Initiate. Engage. Don't wait to be picked - pick yourself. I so identify with this sentiment. It's a driving tenet behind SQLPeople. Seth points out the (dying) ...

  • Geek City: Preparing for the SQL Server Master Exam

    I was amazed at the results when I just did a search of SQLBlog, and realized no one had really blogged here about the changes to the Microsoft Certified Master (MCM) program. Greg Low described the MCM program when he decided to pursue the MCM at the end of 2008, but two years later, at the end of 2010, Microsoft completely changed the ...

  • Book: SQL Server DMVs in Action

    A while ago, I was offered to have an early look at the book ''SQL Server DMVs in Action'' (by Ian W. Stirk). This morning, I received a copy (in electronic form) from Manning Publications of the book. So I jumped straight into the book, and here are some thoughts from a quick first look: DMVs were introduced in SQL Server 2005, ...

  • Writing a Book, and Moving my Blog

    I started blogging about SQL Server here at SQLblog back in July, 2009 and it was a lot of fun, I enjoyed it a lot. Then later, after a series of blog posts about the Query Optimizer, I was invited to write an entire book about that same topic. But after a few months I realized that it was going to be hard to continue both blogging and writing ...

  • Did You Know? More online seminars!

    I am in Tucson again, having just recorded two more online workshops to be broadcast by SSWUG. We haven't set the dates yet, but we are thinking about offering a special package deal for the two of them. The topics really are related and I think they would work well together. They are both on aspects of Query Processing. The first was on how to ...
