I haven’t been blogging lately because I’ve been busy tweaking my resume, working on PASS SQLRally, serving at church, and spending time with my family. Things aren’t going to be slowing down anytime soon, but I wanted to let those who do read this blog know that I’m still around and about my upcoming speaking engagements:
Wednesday, March 9th 3pm
I’ll be doing a web cast on Security, Performance, and Maintenance Advantages to Using Stored Procedures over ORM Tools where I share my opinions on why Stored Procedures are better than an ORM tool for a data access layer.
Saturday, March 26th 10:50am
I’ll be presenting Introduction to SQL Server Profiler at the Orlando CodeCamp. I’ve given this presentation several times, but will be tailoring for developers so that they can really see what their preferred ORM tool is doing.
Saturday April 2nd 9am
I’ll be presenting Introduction to Triggers SQLSaturday #71 – Boston. I’ll be giving a brief overview of the different types of triggers available in SQL Server (DDL & DML) and then go into more detail on how and when to use DML triggers. This session will cover misconceptions about how triggers work, when triggers should and shouldn't be used (we will discuss options), common mistakes, and how to fix the most common mistakes.
