  • Thank *you* for my SQL Server MVP Award…

    Today, I was awarded (at least) one more time with the Microsoft MVP Award. This makes 12 years, and with this, my 11th renewal, I have yet to feel like it is something I can take for granted (you don’t want to be around me the last week of September!). It has been a great time so far, and I have no idea how many years I will be back (admittedly, ...

  • Heading to Orlando for SQL Saturday again this year

    Last year, I attended SQL Saturday Orlando again after missing a few years (I did my first database design precon there a few years back). I love the way they run their event, and as speakers, we did some fun stuff like being the ones that served lunch to the attendees. This year, I wasn’t sure if I had a chance to go, because I had scheduled a ...

  • Upcoming Speaking Engagements in Indianapolis and Louisville

    Mercy, July is flying past at breakneck pace isn't it?

On August 8 I will travel up to Indianapolis for SQL Saturday #402, a city I have been to a few times previously but not for a SQL Saturday. My ...

  • Off to Richmond for SQL Saturday

    I got the email prodding speakers to blog about our upcoming sessions, so I got myself up and started to write this blog. It has been such a long time since I have done much side SQL work (other than doing quite a bit of tech editing, along with doing some work for PASS leading up to speaker submissions), that my blog didn't even show up in the ...

  • PASS Summit Attendance “Advice”

    Wow, it is fall again, and in a large percentage of the minds of SQL Community members, that means that the PASS Summit is here again. I have been to all of the Summits save the first one, and honestly it has become one of the highlights of my nerd year. I have learned a tremendous amount about SQL, made a lot of real friends, and gained a taste ...

  • How In-Memory Database Objects Affect Database Design: Hybrid Code

    In my first attempts at building my code, I strictly went with either native or on-disk code. I specifically wrote the on-disk code to only use features that worked in-memory. This lead to one majorly silly bit of code, used to create system assigned key values. How would I create a customer number that was unique. We can’t use the Max(value) + 1 ...
