  • Capturing Attention: Writing Great Session Descriptions

    One of the best ways we can differentiate ourselves and further our careers is to get out of the office… and onto a stage. Presenting can give you name recognition; open doors to new opportunities; help you gain a deeper understanding of technology (teaching a topic often forces you to learn it at a much deeper level); and for many people it's ...

  • Pro SQL Server 2012 Practices Chapter 8: Release Management Review

    This past year, I contributed a chapter to an anthology book of best practices for working with SQL Server 2012 entitled Pro SQL Server 2012 Practices (http://www.apress.com/9781430247708). As authors, for publicity we decided to do summary reviews one another's chapters. There are lots of great technical sounding chapters, but when I picked, I ...

  • The Year That Was - 2012

  • 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 ...

Publication of the book – like many projects of this scope – has been delayed. The current publication date is 27 Aug 2012 and I have high confidence in this date. I take ...

  • New Developments at SQLServerPedia.com

  • Chapter 8–Patterns and Anti-Patterns

    In this last kind of “creative” chapter, I will look at some of the ways you implement common problems in your relational database, and some of the ways you probably shouldn’t. The “should” sections will deal with: Uniqueness – Beyond the simple uniqueness we have covered in the first chapters of the book, looking at some very realistic ...

  • Chapter 7–Enforced Data Protection

    As the book progresses, I find myself veering from the original stated outline quite a bit, because as I teach about this more (and I am teaching a daylong db design class in August at http://www.sqlsolstice.com/… shameless plug, but it is on topic :) I start to find that a given order works better. Originally I had slated myself to talk more ...
