  • 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!

    Later this week I will be doing an episode of the Greg Low’s excellent SQL Down Under podcast (http://www.sqldownunder.com/Resources/Podcast.aspx), something I did once before back in 2006.  If you haven’t listened to any of the previous editions, there are some amazing people who have been on his podcast. 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 ...

  • 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 ...

    Well, we are finally here at what is the secular version of the holiday season for Microsoft SQL Server nerd types, the week of the SQLPASS Summit. This year, I am speaking 3 times and will also be doing the Quiz Bowl at the Welcome Reception, so I am going to be busy.
