  • Row Level Security and Indexed Views

    I was giving my Row Level Security session last weekend for the Richmond User Group (@RichmondSQL http://rva.pass.org/) and a question came up (ok, so I technically asked the question). How does the feature work with indexed views? Generally speaking, the answer turned out to be obvious. You can apply a RLS Security Policy to a view that has ...

  • Scenic City Summit is this Friday

    Scenic City Summit is a one day conference in Chattanooga, the Scenic City Summit is a new experience for me, although in a familiar, Devlink-esqe setting of the Chattanooga Convention Center in Chattanooga, TN. I am looking forward to attending, and seeing a couple of fellow Microsoft MVP's do keynotes: Cory House and David Neal. I have never ...

  • Getting Excited about my Practical Performance Monitoring Pre-Con

      I was working on the demo’s for my Practical Performance Monitoring Pre-Con at this years IT / Dev Connections in San Francisco and I have to admit I got a little giddy.  The session is geared towards helping a DBA get started in monitoring their SQL Server Instances, especially when they don’t have the ability to buy a 3rd party ...

  • SQL Saturday Chattanooga is THIS WEEK!

    My goodness how time does fly. It seems like just a few months ago I was going to my hometown SQL Saturday in Nashville, and now here I go again to my NEW hometown SQL Saturday in Chattanooga, TN. Much like the Nashville event, I didn't really do anything in terms of organization of the event, but I will be speaking at the event this year (last ...

  • Speaking at the Nashville SQL Server User's Group on April 28th.

    And they say you can't go home again.. On the 28th of April I will be returning back to my old home of Nashville to speak at the Nashville SQL Server User's Group. (And where I moved to was very near the home I lived in when I was in high school.) The session I will be doing is a one off session of demos of some of the new T-SQL features that ...

  • SQL Saturday Birmingham #593 is this weekend!

    It has been a while since I was last in Birmingham (Alabama) for a SQL Saturday. They didn't have one last year, and the event they did have was on the same weekend as Music City Code, so I wasn't able to attend. This year, I can't make it to SQL Saturday in Richmond due to this event, so I am fairly sure things have balanced themselves out. I ...

  • Music City Code, a great conference that you may have never heard of yet

    For quite a few years, Nashville, and then Chattanooga had a conference called Devlink. It was low on cost, and high on education, and run by the awesome John Kellar (@johnkellar), who wrote the forward of my 2012 book. It was an amazing conference and was the place where I learned (well, in many cases learned about) a lot of stuff that existed in ...

  • My last SQL Event as a Nashvillian… SQL Saturday Nashville #581

    Of course, technically, I live in Thompsons Station, about 20 miles south of Nashville, and technically this event will be held in Murfreesboro, also 20 miles south of Nashville, and 30 miles south of Thompsons Statiion. But this is splitting hairs. I am leaving the Nashville area for the Chattanooga area (again, 20 miles away in Cleveland, TN) at ...

  • Post PASS Summit 2016 Resolutions - Followup

    Last year I started a new tradition for myself that will last until I specifically retire from the SQL Server community, something that I practically promise isn't coming in next year's resolutions. As this is the end of the PASS year, with the Summit coming up next week, it is time to see how I did with regards to what I said I would do. I didn't ...

  • Where have I been? Where will I be?

    SQL Saturday Orlando has been postponed. I won't be able to make it for the make up day, so that part of this blog has changed. Not the part about me loving the folks down there. They are still awesome!  I again have not blogged so much that I don't show up in the list on SQLBlog.com, but it is about time to start blogging again. Where ...
