    A while back, I was working on a short article about Normalization for a book that never got published (admittedly I wasn’t getting paid for the article, and it wasn’t for charity, so I wasn’t that broken up over it.)  The task at hand was to, in 2 pages or less, describe the process of normalization and help you to know when you have ...

  • PASS BOF Lunch – SQL Server and NoSQL alternatives

    Beside my BI workshop on Friday, this year at PASS Summit I’ll also contribute by participating at the Birth Of Feather Lunch on a very hot topic: “SQL Server and the NoSQL Alternatives” I’ve been watching closely the NoSQL movement right from the beginning (as soon as it started to grow also in Italy, so from January 2010), since I simply love ...

  • Fifth pillar - Secure

    As I have mentioned in all of the previous posts, basic functionality is the foundation of any system. So it goes without saying that if you have just implemented a payroll system, everyone is getting paid.  To meet the basic bar that EVERYONE agrees upon, to be useful things have to work.

  • Commenting your code

    As I am easing back into real life from writing the book, I am in search of easy targets for blogging.  My boss mentioned this blog over on Jeff Atwood's Coding Horror Blog and it got me thinking about commenting.  His advice is to only comment "why" the code works.  I can't quite agree, because the code he claims to be ...
