  • The SQL Genie (T-SQL Tuesday #086)

    At some point a long time ago, when I was first getting serious about SQL Server, I became aware of an open secret. You see, there was this special Microsoft alias called “sqlwish.” Those in the know could send an e-mail and pass along suggestions for improving the product. And they wouldn’t just vanish into thin air; some actual member of the ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday Rules of Engagement

    Just over seven years ago (wow, does time fly!) I launched T-SQL Tuesday. The core idea is simple: Each month, one blogger acts as “host.” He or she is responsible for choosing an interesting topic in or related to the SQL Server realm. Then a bunch of other bloggers all write articles on that topic. Finally, the hosting blogger puts together a ...

  • A Computer Scientist Meets T-SQL

    There I was. A freshly printed bachelor's degree in Computer Science tucked under my arm, I walked into my First Real Job. I'd never touched the technologies I was going to work with--ASP 3.0 and SQL Server--but my employer knew that, and I figured I'd be able to pick things up relatively quickly. After all, I'd been programming since the 2nd ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #21 - A Day Late and Totally Full of It

    “This ugly hack is only temporary,” you think. Six months later, a coworker curses your name, sacrificing a chicken to any deity that will help expedite your getting struck down by lightning, a school bus, or both. Crap code. We’ve all seen it. We’ve all created it. We’re all guilty. Yes, even you. Sometimes our crap is purposeful—the ugly, ...

  • A Year of Tuesdays: T-SQL Tuesday Meta-Roundup

    Just over a year ago I kicked off T-SQL Tuesday, ''a recurring, revolving blog party.'' The idea was simple:Each month a blog will host the party, and about a week before the second Tuesday of the month a theme will be posted. Any blogger that wishes to participate is invited to write a post on the chosen topic. The event is called ''T-SQL ...

  • Better Late Than Never: T-SQL Tuesday #008 - Gettin' Schooled

    Apologies for the late reminder; tomorrow is T-SQL Tuesday. This month's event is hosted by Robert Davis over at SQL Server Central and the theme is ''Gettin' Schooled.'' How do you learn? Or how do you teach? Have you learned anything interesting recently that you'd like to share? Post about it! For full details see Robert's blog. By the way, ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #006: LOB Data

    Just a quick note for those of you who may not have seen Michael Coles's post (and a reminder for the rest of you): The topic of this month's T-SQL Tuesday is LOB data. Get your posts ready; next Tuesday we go big!

  • T-SQL Tuesday #005: Reporting

    This month's T-SQL Tuesday is hosted by Aaron Nelson of SQLVariations. Aaron has picked a really fantastic topic: Reporting. Reporting is a lot more than just SSRS. Whether or not you realize it, you deal with all sorts of reports every day. Server up-time reports. Application activity reports. And even DMVs, which as Aaron points out are simply ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #004: IO, IO, It's Off to Disk We Go!

    Hey bloggers! Wake up and get your favorite editor ready. T-SQL Tuesday is back again, this time with a great topic hosted by Mike at StraightPath Solutions. Stop reading this blog and go read his. And then post! As I mentioned to a few Indian MVPs at the MVP Summit a couple of weeks ago, there have been no T-SQL Tuesday contributions as of yet ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #002: The Roundup

    According to T-SQL Tuesday rules as ratified by me in the first and second T-SQL Tuesday posts, the T-SQL Tuesday host is supposed to post a roundup within two days of the end of the event. So a reasonable person should expect a roundup to be posted by the second Thursday of the month. It gives me no pleasure to admit that I've been completely ...
