I'll be doing a new session, "Introduction to Power BI Designer" tomorrow at 11am ET as part of the Pragmatic Works Training on the T's series of FREE webinars! Please register at the link above and see how the new Power BI Designer that is currently in preview works and what I expect it means for the future of BI at Microsoft (I even do a little bit of a look back for those that aren't up on the latest with Power BI).

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the session tomorrow morning. Look for another post later this week with the link to the slides and answering any questions from the session that I don't get to in the session.

My current gig has me working a lot with Availability Groups. I love the options they give me with their ability to failover fast and replicate my data to other servers. It is a lot of peace of mind for high availability and data protection. The price of all this comes from a much more […]

This month’s T-SQL Tuesday is from Doc Mike Donnely(@SQLMD) with a simple premise: show us something you learned. Considering that working in the information technology field means we are always learning (or at least should be), blogging on this should be a snap. It’s a great fit for the #SQLNewBlogger challenge if you’re in on […]

This last weekend I was in California for an extended weekend with my family at Disneyland and Huntington Beach to participate in the Orange County/Huntington Beach SQLSaturday! Awesome weather and great times visiting Disneyland and the Huntington Beach/LA area. I finally got to cross off visiting the Griffith Observatory from my list of todos in LA, it was quite the hike from where we had to park, but worth it for the view and the amazing show in the planetarium.

Back to the Huntington Beach SQLSaturday, thanks to the great crew there in the OC on putting on another successful event! For the first time I did 2 presentations at this SQLSaturday and both of them went very well with great interaction from the attendees that helped make the session extra informative for everyone there. Below I have posted the links to download the slides and demo materials from both presentations.


Thanks again to everyone that came out and I look forward to making my way back to the LA area again in the future!

Next SQLSaturday for me will be Atlanta on May 16th!

Here we are, the annual community tradition of submitting sessions to the PASS Summit. This is the big time, the real deal, the event everyone wants to be seen at (as far as SQL Server goes). We all have hopes and dreams of standing on that stage, sharing what we love about SQL Server with […]

I really enjoy interacting with the SQL community on Twitter. Whether it is exchanging silly one line, sharing interesting articles and blog posts, or trying to answer a tricky problem, the conversation is always engaging. One such conversation that happened last week was a community member who was struggling with the output he wanted out […]

This week my friend Ed Leighton-Dick(@elieghtondick) announced his New SQL Blogger challenge.  It’s an effort focused on getting new bloggers to write regularly and build a habit of blogging. We’ve heard a lot about how blogging can build your personal brand, so I’m a big fan of this challenge and will participate, even though I’ve […]

Last week, I was talking with another DBA on my team about our release process.  He was running a series of SQL scripts as part of a code release.  There were about 4 different scripts and, while he was running each one, he would log the start and stop time for each script execution in […]
