Next week I'll be leaving for SQLSaturday #337 Oregon and PASS Summit 2014 where I will be speaking at both!

SQLSaturday #337 Oregon will be my first trip to Portland, so I'm looking forward to seeing a new city and speaking to the Oregon SQL Server community. My session will be "Date and Time Dimensions for Every Day and Time in No Time" at 1:15pm in Room 204 (keep your eye on the schedule page or Guidebook just in case it changes). I love giving this Date Dimension talk as it is something that every Data Warehouse needs and everyone hates setting them up, so I help with a single script and some advice. If you are going to be in the Portland area on Saturday, November 1st, please make sure you register and I'll see you next Saturday!

After SQLSaturday #337 I'll take the Amtrak from Portland to Seattle on Sunday for my favorite conference, PASS Summit 2014! PASS Summit is a yearly SQL Server conference that has thousands of SQL Server professionals and speakers from across the world. For the second PASS Summit in a row I'll be presenting a session. After attending this amazing conference yearly since 2007 I have become very involved in the SQL Server community and love that I now get to be part of speakers/volunteers that make this event great. I'll be presenting "What Version of SSDT do I Need?" at 3pm on Wednesday, November 5th in Room 606. I'll also be volunteering at the PASS Community Zone, so make sure to stop by and say hi!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Portland and Seattle in a week and hanging out with my #SQLFamily at both events!

If you're like me and tend to feel embarrassed by the old technology you're running, don’t be. Instead, hold your head up high. You're probably doing the best you can with what you're given and for your specific environment. Some things are out of our control. We can only do our best to get where we need to be.

Have you ever noticed when you are working on a query for SQL Server and the second time you execute the query it runs much faster than the first time you had executed it? There is a reason for this and most likely it is caused by your buffer. When you’re SQL Server starts there […]

Starting something new is hard.  An exercise regimen, a diet, studying for certification exams.  Getting to the finish and attaining the desired goal is even harder.  Completing a predictive analytics initiative is no different and the first one is particularly hard. You’ve spent time on research, reading and investigation, and you see the upside.  You know […]

Elon Musk unveiled the new Tesla Model S P85D last Thursday at a big event at Hawthorne Airport in California. In my opinion, this was one of the better public events for Tesla that Elon Musk has done (at least … Continue reading

Following up on my last post, it looks like PASS has addressed the election issues.  The gist of the fix is: The voting deadline has been extended to October 14. Members have until October 5 to update and validate your account.  Go do this. My thanks to the PASS Board of Directors to doing the […]

I really hate having to return to my blog to write this.  I should be putting up another post about Powershell, SQL Server, and happy life in general.  Alas, this is not the case, and I need to express some thoughts publically regarding the recent PASS Board of Directors vote.  I’ve made quite a bit […]
