  • Learning through others

    This PASS Summit was a different experience for me – I wasn’t speaking. I’ve presented at three of the five PASS Summits I’ve been to, where the previous one I’d not spoken at was 2012, while I was a PASS Director (and had been told I shouldn’t submit talks – advice that I’d ignored in 2013). I have to admit that I really missed presenting, both ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #43 – Hello, Operator?

    June 11th is next week. It’s a Tuesday, the second Tuesday of the month, making it T-SQL Tuesday! This is your opportunity to write on a specific topic, along with countless* people from around the SQL community (* at least until the end of the day, when it will be quite easy to count how many people joined in). This month marks 3.5 years since it ...

  • Why I present

    Louis Davidson just asked me why I write, and now Bob Pusateri (@sqlbob) is asking me why I present, which is his question for this month’s T-SQL Tuesday. If you didn’t follow the link to see his actual question, you’ll need to know that he actually posed the question “How did you come to love presenting?” Well, sometimes I don’t, but on the ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday : Reflections on the PASS Summit and our community

    Last week I attended the PASS Summit in Seattle. I blogged from both keynotes (Keynote #1 and Keynote #2), as well as the WIT Luncheon - which SQL Sentry sponsored. I had a fantastic time at the conference, even though these days I attend far fewer sessions that I used to. As a company, we were overwhelmed by the positive energy in the Expo ...

  • SQL Community – stronger than ever

    I posted a few hours ago about a reflection of the Summit, but I wanted to write another one for this month’s T-SQL Tuesday, hosted by Chris Yates. In January of this year, Adam Jorgensen and I joked around in a video that was used for the SQL Server 2012 launch. We were asked about SQLFamily, and we said how we were like brothers – how we ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #34: HELP!

    I owe my career to the SQL Server community, specifically the Internet SQL Server community, so this month’s T-SQL Tuesday is especially poignant. I changed careers “cold” about eight years ago, and, while I had some educational background in computer science, I had relatively little real-world DBA experience. Someone gave me a shot in the form of ...

  • Collation errors in business

    At the PASS Summit last month, I did a set (Lightning Talk) about collation, and in particular, the difference between the “English” spoken by people from the US, Australia and the UK. One of the examples I gave was that in the US drivers might stop for gas, whereas in Australia, they just open the window a little. This is what’s known as a ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #008: How Learning Has Changed

    When I started my technical career, the only way to learn about programming was from books and magazines.  I remember writing my first HTML page and finding it quite similar to the Vic20 days, where you would transcribe code for hours; when you made a mistake, that meant it was time to start over.  The Internet was ...

  • Spatial data from shapefiles (for T-SQL Tuesday #006)

    I’m giving a presentation on May 12th at the Adelaide .Net User Group, around the topic of spatial data, and in particular, the visualization of said data. Given that it’s about one the larger types, this post should also count towards Michael Coles’ T-SQL Tuesday on BLOB data. I wrote recently about my experience with exploded data, but what I ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #003 (Relationships): The round-up

    (Reposted from my msmvps.com blog) Lots of blog posts for this month, for the first T-SQL Tuesday to leave the safe-haven of Adam Machanic’s blog. Some people obviously missed out, probably because they don’t read this blog, but I guess that’s the nature of the meme. I don’t know who is hosting next month yet, but I’ll be looking out for Adam to ...
