  • Playing the Third-Party Recruiter Game (T-SQL Tuesday #093)

    Finding a new job can be a long and stressful proposition. This holds true even for skilled candidates. And even for skilled candidates in an atmosphere like we have in 2017—in which everyone who is employable is, for the most part, employed, and IT positions often stay open for months due to a lack of qualified people. This is a great time to ...

  • Interviews and niches

    T-SQL Tuesday turns this month to the topic of job interviews. Kendra Little (@kendra_little) is our host, and I really hope her round-up post is in the style of an interview. I’m reminded of a T-SQL Tuesday about three years ago on a similar topic, but I’m sure there will be plenty of new information this time around – the world has moved ...

  • Learning the hard way – referenced objects or actual objects

    This month’s T-SQL Tuesday is about lessons we’ve learned the hard way. Which, of course, is the way you learn best. It’s not the best way to learn, but if you’ve suffered in your learning somewhat, then you’re probably going to remember it better. Big thanks to Raul Gonzalez (@sqldoubleg) for dragging up these memories. Oh, I could list all ...

  • “Stored procedures don’t need source control…”

    Hearing this is one of those things that really bugs me. And it’s not actually about stored procedures, it’s about the mindset that sits there. I hear this sentiment in environments where there are multiple developers. Where they’re using source control for all their application code. Because, you know, they want to make sure they have a history ...

  • The Guru (T-SQL Tuesday #089)

    I became a consultant a bit earlier in my career than was probably wise. The going was rough at first, with periods of feast and periods of famine. Although I had several clients, I didn’t understand how to sell services or schedule my workload, and so I’d wind up either doing huge amounts of work for a few weeks, or absolutely nothing some other ...

  • Solving the Net Changes Problem with Temporal Tables (T-SQL Tuesday #087)

    SQL Server 2008 was perhaps not the meatiest of SQL Server releases, but it did have one especially promising feature: Data change detection. Or maybe two features, depending on how you look at things. I’m talking, of course, about the almost confusingly similarly named Change Data Capture and Change Tracking. Change Data Capture was the big ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #86 My all-time favorite personal SQL Server Enhancement Request: Automatically maintained columns

    I have heard the name T-SQL Tuesday for (like,) ever; but I have always been so into my own bundle of insanity that never took the time to figure out what it is. This changes today because I read a blog on Adam Machanic's (@adammachanic) blog that outlined the rules (here) and I have been keen to get back to blogging regularly. When I saw what ...

  • The SQL Genie (T-SQL Tuesday #086)

    At some point a long time ago, when I was first getting serious about SQL Server, I became aware of an open secret. You see, there was this special Microsoft alias called “sqlwish.” Those in the know could send an e-mail and pass along suggestions for improving the product. And they wouldn’t just vanish into thin air; some actual member of the ...

  • This month’s T-SQL Tuesday post

    …is not here. It’s over at https://sqlperformance.com/2017/01/sql-performance/estimated-number-of-rows-to-be-read I write about the new EstimatedRowsRead property, and in particular, about how Microsoft responded so well to the Connect Item I created, requesting the feature. @rob_farley

  • T-SQL Tuesday Rules of Engagement

    Just over seven years ago (wow, does time fly!) I launched T-SQL Tuesday. The core idea is simple: Each month, one blogger acts as “host.” He or she is responsible for choosing an interesting topic in or related to the SQL Server realm. Then a bunch of other bloggers all write articles on that topic. Finally, the hosting blogger puts together a ...
