  • Columnstore Indexes in SQL Server 2014: Flipping the DW /faster Bit at #SQLSaturday347 / #SQLSatDC

Register, see the schedule, or see the event home ...

  • MVP/SQLPASS Summit Wrapup From a Non-Attendee

      (Or “How I Sort of Attended PASS This Year After All and It Wasn’t as Horrible as it Might Have Been”) Wow, my experience at this year’s MVP Summit and PASS Summit was not at all what I had expected it to be for me just weeks ago when I was planning my trip. Life intervened, and as my blog post last week here explained, the short of it is ...

  • Why I am not going to PASS this year

    This is going to be one of my toughest non-technical posts ever. And the reason it will be difficult will have an ancillary relationship to the Lortabs I have been taking for the last two days. It has everything to do with me being at home while the 2014 PASS Summit is going on. Previously, the only Summit I had missed was the first one in ...

  • PASS Summit Attendance “Advice”

    Wow, it is fall again, and in a large percentage of the minds of SQL Community members, that means that the PASS Summit is here again. I have been to all of the Summits save the first one, and honestly it has become one of the highlights of my nerd year. I have learned a tremendous amount about SQL, made a lot of real friends, and gained a taste ...

  • How In-Memory Database Objects Affect Database Design: Hybrid Code

    In my first attempts at building my code, I strictly went with either native or on-disk code. I specifically wrote the on-disk code to only use features that worked in-memory. This lead to one majorly silly bit of code, used to create system assigned key values. How would I create a customer number that was unique. We can’t use the Max(value) + 1 ...

  • How In-Memory Database Objects Affect Database Design: Uniqueness

    This part is part of an ongoing series of blogs I am writing while preparing to give a presentation based on the prefix of this blog's title. It is a work in progress as I explore the effects of the new in-memory model. I would love comments that tell me that I am wrong (especially if it turns out that I am!) The first issue that arose in my ...
