It’s alive! It’s alive!
That’s enough from Colin Clive.
It’ll be out for the Summit. SQL Server Standard lives again! Although, not quite in the same shape as it used to be. But hey, stitching stuff together out of dead tissue is messy work.
I want to thank our…
It's good to see all your bright and chipper faces here at SQL University. Hopefully you've digest Monday's lesson on Authentication. Today we're going to discuss Authorization. Now Authorization can only take place after Authentication has been accomplished. If SQL Server doesn't know who you are, it can't… Read more

After making seven presentations in Australia, I headed to New Zealand where I made four presentations in four cities, on four successive days. Because my schedule was so packed, I only got a couple of days in Auckland (New Zealand’s most populace city) to visit the sites.

Do you know what determinism is? It's something that comes up periodically in Books Online as various SQL objects require deterministic functions. Things like indexes views.
I ran across a question on this for our ASK site, and thought it was interesting. I started to reply, then had to double… Read more
I’m scheduled to fly into Seattle at 6pm, which means I hope to be at… Read more
Funny how tools can surprise you. I’ve had in mind to set up a sub-group and invite all the SQLSaturday #21 attendees, encourage post event networking. I’ve imported contacts before and it worked well, so went to do it today for a subgroup and as far as I can tell,… Read more
I have to admit, when asked to perform a migration from Oracle to SQL Server over the past couple of months, I was a bit apprehensive. After having passed an all-nighter to finish the project off recently, starting at 3pm, and finally heading home around 6:30am, there was…Read more
Besides giving two Community Session presentations (here and here), next week, I will be involved in the Birds of a Feather (BOF) Lunch on Tuesday, November 3 at 11:30AM and the SQL Server MVP Deep Dives Book Launch and Signing on Wednesday, November 4 at 11:30AM. These are… Read more
My book "Beginning T-SQL 2008" came out about two weeks ago. http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-T-SQL-2008-Kathi-Kellenberger/dp/1430224614/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1256604424&sr=8-1 It's a beginning book because I assume that the readers know nothing about T-SQL. I wanted to make sure that beginners get off to the right start, so I talk a lot about performance and cover some of the… Read more
Here are the slide decks and code samples from my sessions at SQL Saturday #21 Orlando on 10\17. I've also cross posted these over on the SQL Saturday #21 event site.
Download: Performance Tuning With DMVs
Download: Configuring SQL Access for the Web Developer & Admin
Saturday, 10\17, marked the third year for SQL Saturday here in Orlando and each year it gets bigger and better. With 56(!) sessions across 9 tracks and some big name speakers there was plenty of SQL goodness for everyone who came out for the day.
Although the main… Read more

One week from today I will be in Seattle for my first ever PASS Summit. One of the things I have heard is what a great event this is for networking with other SQL Server people. I think I’ve been able to experience this in a small way at… Read more
Encryption is a tough subject, but it’s one that’s fascinated me for years. I downloaded PGP when it came out nearly two decades ago, and learned about the intricacies of symmetric and asymmetric keys. I thought it was fun, even when I couldn’t convince many people to consider using it. Read more
It's one week until the PASS Summit. At this time next week I'll be on a plane, heading to Seattle with a weeks worth of clothes and a bunch of prizes to give away. This will be my 8th or 9th Summit, and the 5th or 6th one I've attended… Read more
‘Tis the season for travel! With the PASS Summit just around the corner and lots of other interesting events waiting in the wings, such as TechEd Europe, lots of IT people will finally be allowed to stretch their wings (and budgets) to get in some first class training.
I’ve been… Read more
Well, it's a wrap! Saturday has come and gone, but memories will go on. It was great to see so much effort and planning in a relatively short time to come together in one great event. I had a fantastic time. If you missed it, no worries, much discussion and…

I posted some thoughts on business cards awhile back, had used up the ones I had and was time to get some more, especially with the PASS Summit coming up and a greater emphasis on networking. I’m breaking with tradition, sorta, this time!
First, I decided to order some cards… Read more
