  • Less than a month away...

    The PASS Summit for 2014 is nearly upon us, and the MVP Summit is immediately prior, in the same week and the same city. This is my first MVP Summit since early 2008. I’ve been invited every year, but I simply haven’t prioritised it. I’ve been awarded MVP status every year since 2006 (just received my ninth award), but in 2009 and 2010 I attended ...

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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 ...

  • How to Design a Relational Database; PASS Precon Swag and it’s “Symbolism”

    Update! 10 more books added to the cadre from my friends at Red-Gate. With less than a week to go, I am starting to pack up for Charlotte and PASS 2013.

  • PASS Elections: Why I’m leaving the board

    It’s PASS Election time, and this year, there are no serving board members on the ballot. Two years ago, Adam Jorgensen, Denise McInerney and I were elected to the PASS board, serving two-year terms. Since then, Adam and Denise have both been elected as Vice-Presidents of PASS, and will remain on the board in that role. Of the previous VPs, ...
