  • Why We Write #1 - An Interview With Thomas LaRock

    I 've been a writer of trade level technical materials for over 13 years now, writing books, articles, blogs, and even tweets for a variety of outlets, almost exclusively about Microsoft SQL Server. While I won't claim to be the best writer in the world, I feel like I have the process of writing down fairly well, yet, for the life of me, there is ...

  • A wee bit exhausted… time to reenergize

    I admit it. I am tired and I have not blogged nearly enough. This has been a crazy year, with the book I finished writing, the pre-cons I have done (teaching is NOT my primary profession so I do a lot more prep than some others probably do), lots of training on Data Warehousing topics (from Ralph Kimball, Bob Becker, and Stacia Misner, to name ...

  • PASS Precon Countdown… See some of you Monday, and others on Tuesday Night

    As I finish up the plans for Monday’s database design precon, I am getting pretty excited for the day. This is the third time I have done this precon, and where the base slides are very similar, I have a few new twists in mind. One of my big ideas for my Database Design Workshop precon has always been to give people to do some design. So I am even ...

  • 24 Hours of PASS next week, pre-con preview style

    I will be doing my Characteristics of a Great Relational Database, which is a session that I haven’t done since last PASS. When I was asked about doing this Summit Preview version of 24 hours of PASS, I decided that I would do this session, largely because it is kind of light and fun, but also because it is either going to be the basis of the end ...

  • And interview, an online session, a long drive and a SQL Saturday… This week!

On Thursday at 12:00 Central Time, ...

  • Speaking at PASS 2012… Exciting and Scary… As usual…

    Edit: As I reread this, I felt I should clarify.. As usual refers mostly to the ''Scary'' part. I have a lot of stage fright that I have to work through. And it is always exciting to be picked.   I have been selected this year at the PASS Summit 2012 to do two sessions, and they are both going to be interesting. Pre-Con: Relational ...

  • PASS Nomination Committee

    Edit: Well, I didn't get elected, and at this point, seeing who won (great choices in Angela, Stephanie, and Jason) and what else I have going on between now and the end of the year (presentations, grand childen being born, etc), I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.  Usually the phrase ''maybe next year'' is cold comfort to the ...
