  • Developing a Keynote for SQL Saturday #250

    I volunteered to help out and present a keynote at SQL Saturday #250.  It worked out that they couldn't find anyone better.  :-)  I am really looking forward to it and hope that I do not disappoint. The time available is about 40 minutes so it can't get too technical. Although I have been a part of 2 keynotes at the PASS Summit, I ...

  • Parallel Data Processing

    While working on several other items earlier tonight, I remembered that the PASS Keynotes were on the PASS website from this past Summit.  Perhaps one of the best keynotes that I had heard in sometime was by Dr. David DeWitt.  This keynote was more like a classroom lecture than a marketing keynote.  If you had slept in on Friday ...
