  • Why We Write #3 - An Interview With Rob Farley

  • 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.

  • Geek City: A Grammar Geek in the Cloud

  • 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 ...

  • Chapter 8–Patterns and Anti-Patterns

    In this last kind of “creative” chapter, I will look at some of the ways you implement common problems in your relational database, and some of the ways you probably shouldn’t. The “should” sections will deal with: Uniqueness – Beyond the simple uniqueness we have covered in the first chapters of the book, looking at some very realistic ...
