2013 is on the way. Warm greetings to all of you first.

I am posting the questions here to collect and share ideas, thoughts and wishes among the database professionals. People here wear different hats (DBA/developer/architect/etc) and work on the different platforms (SQL/Oracle/Sybase/etc) from all over the places. It would be nice to see how the others are doing in their fields to open each other’s minds.

Here is the simple question to start with:
Does your workplace have any new projects?
Do you have any specific areas would like to work on?

Of course this includes but not limited to SQL.

Best regards,
Vivien

Personally I really want to start working on some certifications, though I say this every year and it never happens :-/ Maybe this year since I've pretty much put getting my Bachelors on the perpetual back burner.

Professionally I hope this is the year I'll finally be able to develop a Data Warehouse. I absolutely love the BI changes to SQL 2012, but given the changes in licensing it'll be hard to persuade the powers that be that it's worth investing in.

In 2013 I will be exploring the new BI capabilities in SQL Server and Office 2013 (so basically the tabular model and PowerView).
I hope to get my MCSE certification on BI (already have the MCSA).

I also will try to write some articles. We'll see how that goes

BI/Data warehousing is always on my wish list. There are so many new technologies coming out these days. It is hard to know all of them. Nevertheless, we still need to keep an eye on what is happening out of our own cubicles.

If you litter your database queries with nolock query hints, are you aware of the side effects?
Try reading a few of these links...

(*) Missing rows with nolock
(*) Allocation order scans with nolock
(*) Consistency issues with nolock
(*) Transient Corruption Errors in SQL Server error log caused by nolock
(*) Dirty reads, read errors, reading rows twice and missing rows with nolock

I've started working with Hadoop. I'm going to keep going with that and expand into more Azure SQL Databases.

Finally teach myself some basics on SSAS. It's the one piece of SQL Server I've never actually worked with, so it's about time for me to at least shake hands and introduce myself to it.
