  • Post PASS Summit Resolutions

    Many years I have tried early in the year to list a set of “New Year’s Resolutions” but one thing I have noted every year is it isn’t New Year’s Day that is the defining part of my year, but rather it is the PASS Summit that defines my year. Usually, by the time the end of October rolls around, I am pretty spent. The summer has ended, and all of ...

  • Thank *you* for my SQL Server MVP Award…

    Today, I was awarded (at least) one more time with the Microsoft MVP Award. This makes 12 years, and with this, my 11th renewal, I have yet to feel like it is something I can take for granted (you don’t want to be around me the last week of September!). It has been a great time so far, and I have no idea how many years I will be back (admittedly, ...

  • Upcoming Speaking Engagements in Indianapolis and Louisville

    Mercy, July is flying past at breakneck pace isn't it? The best part of July passing into the history books is that August has me speaking at two SQL Saturday's, one of them being a first time for me. On August 8 I will travel up to Indianapolis for SQL Saturday #402, a city I have been to a few times previously but not for a SQL Saturday. My ...

Eight SQL Server users groups, eight matching blog posts, two hundred t-shirts, and many hundreds of attendees later, it's time to get back home.Only there's ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 7: Evansville, IN

    Our long #SQLVacation is nearly at an end because our stop in Evansville, IN is our last roadtrip location for the family and the penultimate (i.e., second to last) technical session of the journey. It's a bittersweet, but a joy to have the family with me while I work these long days and late nights.Evansville is such a beautiful place that it was ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 6: St. Louis, MO

    The Griswolds had an experience they'll never forget in St. Louis. And we've had ours too, but in a very good way. We'd vacationed in St. Louis two years ago and had a great time. We've seen the sights, gotten the pictures, and have the t-Shirts. I still love to see the big, iconic Gateway Arch though. In fact, I'm pretty much old news ...

  • Speaking this week at #sqlsatChattanooga and for the PASS Performance Virtual Chapter

    The topic for both sessions will be: How In-Memory Database Objects Affect Database Design and the following is the abstract: With SQL Server 2014, Microsoft has added a major new feature to help optimize OLTP database implementations by persisting your data primarily in RAM. Of course it isn't that simple, internally everything that uses this ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 4: Downtown Chicago

    Of the hundreds of cities that I've visited around the world, Chicago is one of my favorites. The food. The museums. The architecture. The scenery. It's all good - except for those outrageously cold winters. So I was really excited when my family agreed that they'd enjoy spending their summer vacation in the ''Second City'' as the midpoint for ...
