  • Get the SQLBits agenda in your phone's calendar

    For SQLBits 8 in April 2011 I published a calendar containing all of the sessions from the conference; anyone could subscribe to that calendar on their phone or calendar service (i.e. Hotmail or Google Calendar). For the upcoming SQLBits X conference I have done the same again by adding all of the sessions to that same calendar. If you are ...

  • Rick Review: SQLBits7: Consolidating Data Collection with SQLDIAG and SQLNexus

    I ran across this recording about 3 months ago.  It is a recording that is open to everyone.  It was recorded at SQLBits 7 with Christian Bolton as the speaker for a session entitled: ''Consolidating data collection with SQLDIAG and analysing it all with SQLNexus''.  I found it very informative and hope that you will ...

  • New PASS Summit speakers that deserve votes

    I’m not going to ask you to vote for the abstracts that I submitted for the PASS Summit. I’m not even going to mention the abstracts that Roger and Ashley submitted. I figure if you’re reading this, you may have already read the post I wrote about them, back before SQLPASS had said that there’d be voting. Instead, I’m going to pick a few people ...

  • Winners at SQLBits

    Wow - what a great trip through Europe! SQLBits8 was in beautiful and sunny Brighton, which everyone local to the area assures me that it's not usually either. The crowd was large and enthusiastic. We did two rollickin' fun lunch time vendor sessions, one being the SQL Pub Quiz. (I'll tell you about the other one tomorrow in a separate ...

  • Reflections on SQLBits 8

    Its the day after SQLBits 8 and after a busy day at home I now have time to sit down with The Masters on in the background (come on Rory) and reflect on the last 2 days. Its been said many times before I am sure but there is no doubt in my mind that this was the best SQLBits conference yet. The superb location coupled with amazing weather for the ...

  • SQLVids at SQLBits

    At SQLBits 7 in October 2010 I took it upon myself to wander around sticking my video camera into people’s faces and asking them to say something profound for the watching millions tens – you can see those videos at or on my accompanying blog post SQLBits videos (distinctly amateur). Now ...

  • Get the SQLBits agenda on your phone

    The agenda for the forthcoming SQLBits 8 conference in Brighton is currently available at Unfortunately, useful though it quite clearly is, its only a web page and that means its hard to get the agenda data out and onto something more useful. Like your phone’s calendar. I have tried to rectify that ...

  • Analysing SQLBits Feedback

    Earlier this week I received all the feedback that people offered on my session at SQLBits 7 in York – “SSIS Dataflow Performance Tuning” (the video is available online if you wish to see it). As you may have gathered from previous posts on this blog and my less-SQLy-focused Wordpress blog I am a big fan of collecting and tracking both personal ...

  • Using SQL Execution Plans to discover the Swedish alphabet

    SQL Server is quite remarkable in a bunch of ways. In this post, I’m using the way that the Query Optimizer handles LIKE to keep it SARGable, the Execution Plans that result, Collations, and PowerShell to come up with the Swedish alphabet. SARGability is the ability to seek for items in an index according to a particular set of criteria. If you ...
