  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Summary

    As I finish up preparing for the Sep 20 (@1pm ET) webcast, I thought a final blog post may be appropriate in order to quickly reference many of the areas that I have touched upon.  Naturally, much of this information is geared towards First Timers, but Alumni are welcome to join in the webcast as well and are encouraged to help spread even ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 7

    I really don't think that you can get the full flavor of the Summit unless you delve into Social Networking.  There are multiple vehicles for social networking.  Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, LinkedIn, and Yelp are all tools in the Social Networking Toolbox.  At the Summit, the best one of these is Twitter.  With twitter, yo ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 2

    One of the things that you should do is map out your ''Learning Itinerary'' before coming to the summit. It probably will change once you get onsite, but having a plan will save you time and perhaps some frustration.  You can go to the Summit website and start to build your schedule. When you arrive at registration to get your badge and ...

  • Chasing the ISV, or, “That code makes my teeth hurt.” T-SQL Tuesday (ish) #21

    This month’s T-SQL Tuesday – a blog party dreamed up by sqlblog.com’s Adam Machanic ( blog | @AdamMachanic ) – is about that code we’ve all written that we don’t really like to think about too often. You know the stuff. I can’t help but imagine the next poor guy who comes across some of mine and thinks, “What the … How in … Seriously?” I have two ...

  • OT: March Mdness 2011

    This past fall, I decided to take a break from Fantasy Football.  Did I miss it? Yes to some extent.  Fantasy Football can really eat up a lot of time. But - I still love March Madness (NCAA Men's Basketball Tourney).  It doesn't take much time to pick out teams.  Since you can't make any changes after the deadline and the ...

  • Sudoku Solver

    Today I am putting up something silly, just for fun. I set myself the task a while back to write a Sudoku solver in T-SQL, but with two dumb constraints that I would never follow given a real problem: I didn’t look at any documented techniques for solving Sudoku, and I specifically avoided T-SQL solutions, even though this has been done already ...
