  • 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.

  • 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.
