  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 8: Nashville, TN

    All good things must come to an end and, after logging almost 1400 miles on the road, the #SQLVacation road trip returns to its home city - Nashville, TN, the ''Music City''. Eight SQL Server users groups, eight matching blog posts, two hundred t-shirts, and many hundreds of attendees later, it's time to get back home.Only there's ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 7: Evansville, IN

    Our long #SQLVacation is nearly at an end because our stop in Evansville, IN is our last roadtrip location for the family and the penultimate (i.e., second to last) technical session of the journey. It's a bittersweet, but a joy to have the family with me while I work these long days and late nights.Evansville is such a beautiful place that it was ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 6: St. Louis, MO

    The Griswolds had an experience they'll never forget in St. Louis. And we've had ours too, but in a very good way. We'd vacationed in St. Louis two years ago and had a great time. We've seen the sights, gotten the pictures, and have the t-Shirts. I still love to see the big, iconic Gateway Arch though. In fact, I'm pretty much old news ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 5: Springfield, IL

    In the movie, National Lampoon's Vacation, Clark and Ellen Griswold decide to lead their family, including the kids Rusty and Audrey, on a cross-country expedition from the Chicago area to the Los Angeles amusement park Walley World, touted as ''America's Favorite Family Fun Park.'' Ellen sensibly wants to fly, but Clark wants to bond ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 4: Downtown Chicago

    Of the hundreds of cities that I've visited around the world, Chicago is one of my favorites. The food. The museums. The architecture. The scenery. It's all good - except for those outrageously cold winters. So I was really excited when my family agreed that they'd enjoy spending their summer vacation in the ''Second City'' as the midpoint for ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 3: Chicago Suburbs

    I've been to Chicagoland many times over the years. Winters are tough for a Southern boy like me. But summer in Chicagoland is one of the best experiences evah! One such magical experience was when I stumbled into a Taste of Chicago event back when that wasn't a wide-spread event. Irmagird. During the 1990's, when I worked for Deloitte, I ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 2: Indianapolis, Indiana

    For some people, Indianapolis means one thing, and one thing only - the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (a.k.a ''The Brickyard'')  and the Indianapolis 500. In my case, it means several times speaking at IndyPASS, the local SQL Server User Group, over the last 10 years. I first spoke at IndyPASS with the then head of ...

  • Give speakers feedback. It makes a difference.

    I sometimes struggle with finding a catchy title for a blog post. It has to grab the attention, and clarify what the post is about. If you decided to spend time reading my words, I do not want you to finish ending “if I had known this was the content, I would have done something better with my time”. For this post, I think the title just sums up ...
  • SQLPass NomCom election: Why I voted twice

    Did you already cast your votes for the SQLPass NomCom election? If not, you really should! Your vote can make a difference, so don’t let it go to waste. The NomCom is the group of people that prepares the elections for the SQLPass Board of Directors. With the current election procedures, their opinion carries a lot of weight. They can reject ...
  • Understanding Execution Plans

    To me, it feels as if 2014 is a long time away. But it isn’t. Sinterklaas has already dropped off his presents and is probably already back in his castle in Spain. Christmas is almost upon us. And before we know it, we’ll be washing oliebollen down with Champagne. That also means that I need to get cracking on preparing my precon seminar on ...
