  • The Windows Azure Software Development Kit (SDK) and the Windows Azure Training Kit (WATK)

    Windows Azure is a platform that allows you to write software, run software, or use software that we've already written.

  • Windows Azure Visio Shapes

    Normally when I diagram a solution for a customer, I use whatever they are comfortable with. I do most of my work these days in OneNote, especially when it’s an Architecture Design Session (ADS), since I can capture notes, handwriting, drawings, web pages, whiteboards, camera shots and even voice. In fact you can search on most of those. ...

  • Windows Azure End to End Examples

Personally, I use multiple methods of learning when I encounter a new topic, usually starting with reading a bit about the concepts. I quickly want to put those into ...

It’s called the PowerShell Pack and it has a some great new features that I plan to put into place on my production systems as soon as I finished learning and testing them.

  • Whither art thou, oh Microsoft support?

    UPDATE - 2009-08-07 9:39 PM EDT - the SQL Server Release Services team has published a blog post that reflects largely what I've said below. However, many questions are still unanswered. For example, they say that the fix for SP2 is not available yet, but they don't *really* say that the fix is available now for SP3. I think that it is, now ...

  • A theory on how "TOP" is determined in "TOP SQL Server Downloads"

    It's pretty simple, really.  I think they prioritize the downloads they are proud of, instead of the ones that are most popular or that are most needed.  When I went looking for SP2 for SQL Server 2005 today, as I have done so many times in the past, I muttered to myself, why do they make this so hard to find? Granted, if you have a ...
