  • SQL Rally Relational Database Design Pre-Con Preview

    On May 9, 2012, I will be presenting a pre-con session at the SQL Rally in Dallas, TX on relational database design. The fact is, database design is a topic that demands more than a simple one hour session to really do it right. So in my Relational Database Design Workshop, we will have seven times the amount of time in the typical session, giving ...

  • Utility Objects Series Introduction (but mostly a bit of an update)

    So, I have been away from blogging about technical stuff for a  long time,  (I haven’t blogged at all since my resolutions blog, and even my Simple Talk “commentary” blog hasn’t had an entry since December!)  Most of this has been due to finishing up my database design book, which I will blog about at least one more time after it ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 Resource List : What's New in SQL Server 2012

    At PASS I am giving a presentation on Denali SQL Server 2012 - What's New in Engine and Tools. In previous blog posts I've compiled a list of resources and, now that CTP3 is out, I thought I'd compile a much larger list that flows somewhat like my slide deck. Here is the deck and sample files:http://bit.ly/AB-PASS-2012   The second demo ...

  • A Change of Scenery for the PASS Summit

    In 2013, the PASS Summit will move from Seattle, which it has called home in 2003, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, to the warmer climes of Charlotte, North Carolina. (Read the official PASS announcement.) There are a lot of big benefits to this move:folks in the eastern half of the US, never mind Europe and beyond, will lose less time to ...

  • A less shameless plug : PASS sessions I've voted as "preferred"

    Not that my preferences really mean a hill of beans to anyone else, but since I've asked for your vote on my sessions, I'd also like to share the list of sessions that I've marked as ''preferred'' so far. Now, since we have no idea what the schedule will be, we can pick and choose the sessions without any concern about who's up against who in the ...

So if you are planning on going, and you'd like to see me speak about SQL Server ''Denali'' or about Bad T-SQL Habits to Kick, please vote for my sessions here (login ...

  • SQL Server v.Next (Denali) : When will Denali be released?

    Every few days I see the following question being asked on #sqlhelp, on forums, or in person at various SQL-related events: Q: When will Denali be released? A barrage of similar questions actually occurs for every major release (and often for service packs of well) of just about every Microsoft product. And the answer never ...

  • SQLRally slide deck & samples

    Yesterday I spoke at SQLRally in Orlando on new engine and tools features in the next version of SQL Server - codenamed Denali. We nearly filled the room with 70+ people, and I got to hand out a slew of cool giveaways from the SQL Server team - coffee decanters, umbrellas, backpacks, and this cool recycled notebook modeled by Jason Strate (blog | ...
