  • Speaking this weekend at SQL Saturday 277 - Richmond

      One of my favorite locations to speak or attend is when Richmond has a SQL Saturday. (though if you are an organizer of another SQL Saturday's I have submitted to, note that I said ''one of my favorites'' :)). This will be the third time I go to Richmond. I like it for several reasons:   The people - I have coworkers coming up ...

  • Abstract Submission Day for Speaking 2014…

    Today is my least favorite part of the whole speaking thing. It is the day that I put myself out there and wait to see if I get rejected or accepted.

  • Why We Write #8 - An Interview With Stacia Misner

  • SQL Saturday #220 (Atlanta): Demos

    Today at SQL Saturday #220 in Atlanta I presented a new brand new session, ''SQL Server Query Plan Analysis: The 5 Culprits That Cause 95% of Your Performance Headaches.'' This session is designed to help people quickly analyze query plans and find likely culprits without being query tuning experts; I find that in a huge number of cases the root ...

  • Speaking about Relational DB Design the next two weeks (Knoxville, then Atlanta)

    On Friday, May 10 I will be speaking for the Knoxville SQL Server User Group, and on May 18, I will be speaking at SQL Saturday in Atlanta. Both days, my session is my old chestnut “Database Design Fundamentals”. It is my favorite session to do because of two things. 1. I love to talk about database design 2. No demos :).  The abstract is: ...
