  • Speaking this weekend at SQL Saturday 286 - Louisville

    Wow, where does the time go? Hope I see every reader there in Louisville this weekend for a lovely time. Say you live in Alaska and it would be too far to go in one day? Hey, we all have our problems (and don't tell anyone, but I am going to try to finish up video versions of these sessions by the end of the year.. shh.) I will be doing my ...

  • Speaking this week at Richmond SQL Server User Group

    Thursday night, at 6:00 (or so) I will be speaking in Richmond (http://richmondsql.org/cs2007/ ), talking about How to Implement a Hierarchy using SQL Server. The abstract is: One of the most common structures you will come across in the real world is a hierarchy (either a single parent ''tree'' or a multi-parent ''graph''). Many systems ...

  • 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 ...

  • PASS/SQL In The City Are Coming Up Very Soon...

    Every September for the past 12 years, not only does summer slowly come to an end, but it is the time that final preparations for the SQLPASS Summit are being made by just a ton of people. I have always focused on speaker preparations myself for the most part, but there are hundreds of other folks furiously prepping to make the trip up to ...

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

    Today's interviewee is someone who is quite a prolific writer, with her most recent book being Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services, having been released in May of 2013; and if you check out her Linkedin page (http://www.linkedin.com/in/staciamisner), you will find 12 other books she has either authored or co-authored. And that is ...

  • Upcoming Database Design Pre-Cons

First on July 26 for the East Iowa SQL Saturday, and then for the big daddy SQLPASS Summit in Charlotte, NC on October 14. You can see the entire abstract here on the SQL PASS site. It is essentially the same concept as last ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...
