  • PASS Goals and the SQL Server Community

    Introduction I was honored to sit at the blogger's table during the keynote sessions at the PASS Summit 2010! Our official job was to promote the Summit keynotes via social media and our blogs. Our unofficial job was to pick on each other. Rob's response? ''Realised is spelled with an 's', not a 'z'.'' Goals Are Good In the kickoff session ...

  • Blogging from the PASS Keynote : 2010-11-09

    The keynote starts off with a tine Turner impersonator (or maybe it really was Tina?):   Rushabh Mehta (donning the Tina wig) delivers the first segment of the keynote, telling the SQL Server community that we are ''simply the best.'' He then introduces the Board of Directors and founding partners.  He tells us the Board of Directors ...

  • SQL Saturday 27 (Portland, Oregon)

    I’m sitting in the Seattle airport, waiting for my flight to Silicon Valley California for the SQL Server 2008 R2 Launch Event. By some quirk of nature, they are asking me to Emcee the event – but that’s another post entirely.   I’m reflecting on the SQL Saturday 27 event that was just held in Portland, Oregon this last Saturday. These ...

  • How to get Microsoft to speak at your event

    If you’re holding a special event, such as a SQL Saturday or a user group, one of the challenges is to get speakers for the event. Now, the best speakers come from the community – people who use the product day-in, day-out. They have a wealth of expertise, and many of them are really great presenters. But from time to time you might want to get a ...

  • Quest DMV Breakfast Code – Disk IO

    For any of you who attended the Quest breakfast at PASS (and anyone else really) I wanted to go ahead and post the code and give a little wrap up/explanation. (I will post the stuff on perf counters later. They are cool, but this is really what I wanted to make sure people saw.) I had a plan for my presentation, but time was less than I expected, ...

  • Things I Know Now

    Introduction I was tagged by Joe Webb for this question circulating through the inter-tubes. Joe and I shared a cab to the airport after the PASS Summit 2008. If you've never had the opportunity to share a cab with Joe, I highly recommend it. He's one of those people. You know the type - they talk to you for a few minutes and ...

  • The concept of a data steward

    At PASS this year, Adam Machanic and Peter DeBetta gave a great session presenting things as sort of ''anti-patterns''. They would have slides that have would say things like ''Naming standards are irrelevant'' or ''always use heaps''. It was a blast. The audience chimed in with equally bad ideas (including myself). Kudos guys! What really struck ...

  • SQLPass 2008: The PASS Summit - Day Two

    Introduction ''Hey Andy? What happened to your Day One post?'' Excellent question. I was going to post a Day One post - really I was - but I got side-tracked. I won't mention any names, but I will blame the major offenders by their Twitter handles: @BrentO, @sqlagentman, and @SqlBatman. These gentlemen forced me - through coercion and peer ...
