  • PASS/SQL In The City Are Coming Up Very Soon...

    Every September for the past 12 years, not only does summer slowly come to an end, but it is the time that final preparations for the SQLPASS Summit are being made by just a ton of people. I have always focused on speaker preparations myself for the most part, but there are hundreds of other folks furiously prepping to make the trip up to ...

  • Upcoming Database Design Pre-Cons

    In July and October, I will be doing my "How To Design a Relational Database" full day conference in two places. First on July 26 for the East Iowa SQL Saturday, and then for the big daddy SQLPASS Summit in Charlotte, NC on October 14. You can see the entire abstract here on the SQL PASS site. It is essentially the same concept as last ...

  • A wee bit exhausted… time to reenergize

    I admit it. I am tired and I have not blogged nearly enough. This has been a crazy year, with the book I finished writing, the pre-cons I have done (teaching is NOT my primary profession so I do a lot more prep than some others probably do), lots of training on Data Warehousing topics (from Ralph Kimball, Bob Becker, and Stacia Misner, to name ...

  • 24 Hours of PASS next week, pre-con preview style

    I will be doing my Characteristics of a Great Relational Database, which is a session that I haven’t done since last PASS. When I was asked about doing this Summit Preview version of 24 hours of PASS, I decided that I would do this session, largely because it is kind of light and fun, but also because it is either going to be the basis of the end ...

  • Louisville SQL Saturday…

First, the one on Sequences: ------------------------------------ What Sequence objects are (and are not) SQL Server 2012 adds a new object to our arsenal called a sequence that can will give us the capability to implement ...

  • Speaking at PASS 2012… Exciting and Scary… As usual…

    Edit: As I reread this, I felt I should clarify.. As usual refers mostly to the ''Scary'' part. I have a lot of stage fright that I have to work through. And it is always exciting to be picked.   I have been selected this year at the PASS Summit 2012 to do two sessions, and they are both going to be interesting. Pre-Con: Relational ...

  • PASS Nomination Committee

    Edit: Well, I didn't get elected, and at this point, seeing who won (great choices in Angela, Stephanie, and Jason) and what else I have going on between now and the end of the year (presentations, grand childen being born, etc), I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.  Usually the phrase ''maybe next year'' is cold comfort to the ...

  • PASS Week/Speaking/Doing Schedule

    Well, we are finally here at what is the secular version of the holiday season for Microsoft SQL Server nerd types, the week of the SQLPASS Summit. This year, I am speaking 3 times and will also be doing the Quiz Bowl at the Welcome Reception, so I am going to be busy. If you are here and are interested in database design, please do stop by and ...

  • A Change of Scenery for the PASS Summit

    In 2013, the PASS Summit will move from Seattle, which it has called home in 2003, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, to the warmer climes of Charlotte, North Carolina. (Read the official PASS announcement.) There are a lot of big benefits to this move:folks in the eastern half of the US, never mind Europe and beyond, will lose less time to ...

  • Blogging from the PASS Keynote : 2010-11-09

    The keynote starts off with a tine Turner impersonator (or maybe it really was Tina?):   Rushabh Mehta (donning the Tina wig) delivers the first segment of the keynote, telling the SQL Server community that we are ''simply the best.'' He then introduces the Board of Directors and founding partners.  He tells us the Board of Directors ...
