  • 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.

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

So in my Relational Database Design Workshop, we will have seven times the amount of time in the typical session, giving ...

  • PASS First Timer Advice–Make it worth it!

    I have seen a lot of other people giving advice about what to do on your first trip to the SQL PASS Conference and I want to give you my two cents worth as well. Many people will be pushing the social aspects of the conference and that is excellent advice which I too will emphasize, but in my mind there is one main thing you need to do: Make it ...

  • SQLPASS Submissions

    So I am a bit hesitant to post this because the past few times I have posted about something I have submitted they have failed to occur.  But hey, I might as well. If I don’t I might get all 5 sessions I submitted and have to do them.. and that would be super tiring. So I put in 5, including a 1/2 day session and a pre-con and if I could ...

  • Allen White to speak at our Nashville SQL Server User’s group April 24
