  • MySQL, NoSQL, and NuoDB

    I've been keen on MySQL ever since I first started using it heavily more than a decade ago.  In fact, I liked it well enough to include it as one of the four main database platforms, over and above the ANSI-ISO SQL standard, in my popular book SQL in a Nutshell. However, with the advent of NoSQL data platforms in the last few years, ...

  • Help Me Update the History of SQL Server

    I was chatting with my buddy, Buck Woody (Twitter | Blog), about a week ago and we were discussing that it's pretty hard to put together the entire history of SQL Server.  Then the thought hit me that I'd already done this, to a degree, in my book Transact-SQL Programming.  This was the first Transact-SQL programming ...

  • Dev Advice: Make a Tiny Dev Database Act Like a HUGE Prod Database

    Here's an evergreen question. It's a question that never completely goes away. But lately, I've been getting it a few times per week.

  • How Do You SKU?

    I’d like your opinion here. Follow my logic here for a moment as I walk through a couple rhetorical questions.  Have you ever had a friend developed an application entirely on SQL Server Developer Edition?  (Not that YOU would ever do such a thing, but maybe you know someone who has.

    I first wrote about useful database maintenance scripts on my SQLBlog account way back in 2008. Hmmm - now that I think about it, I first wrote about my own useful database maintenance scripts in a journal called SQL Server Professional back in the mid-1990's on SQL Server v6.5 or some such. But I digress... Anyway, I pointed out a couple ...
