  • Upcoming Speaking Engagements in Indianapolis and Louisville

    Mercy, July is flying past at breakneck pace isn't it? The best part of July passing into the history books is that August has me speaking at two SQL Saturday's, one of them being a first time for me. On August 8 I will travel up to Indianapolis for SQL Saturday #402, a city I have been to a few times previously but not for a SQL Saturday. My ...

  • Temporal Tables – Part 2 – Changing history

    After my post yesterday, I had planned to take a break for Independence Day holiday, but a commenter asked a question that piqued my interest. How might you edit history? Well, the answer is simple, but the process isn’t exactly simple. Basically, you have to turn off system versioning, update history, and reapply system versioning. Not difficult, ...

  • Temporal Tables – Part 1 - Simple Single Table Example

    In my first entry in my series of posts on DB Design Book Topics, I want to start with a pretty interesting topic, Temporal Tables. It is a very cool new feature that takes something that used to be very painful (capturing history of changes to a table, allowing the user to see the data at a point in time), and makes it very easy. So if you have ...

  • Time to Start Plotting My 2016 Database Design Book

    Note: A new version has been talked about for years, but it is not a guarantee. This post is my way of introducing the new features of SQL Server, and follow on posts will be code filled example of how the features will work. I am making no promises at this time, but when I can, I will. With the recent release of a CTP version of what is called ...

  • Speaking this weekend at SQL Saturday 286 - Louisville

    Wow, where does the time go? Hope I see every reader there in Louisville this weekend for a lovely time. Say you live in Alaska and it would be too far to go in one day? Hey, we all have our problems (and don't tell anyone, but I am going to try to finish up video versions of these sessions by the end of the year.. shh.) I will be doing my ...

  • Why We Write #9 - An Interview With Laerte Junior Poltronieri

    For my next interview, I am going to a person whom I do not know all that well, but have seen his name many times. Laerte Junior Poltronieri (@LaerteSQLDBA) is a  very active tweeter, with over forty four thousand tweets to his name. His blog: http://shellyourexperience.com/, focuses heavily on one of my least favorite SQL Server topics, ...

  • Why We Write #8 - An Interview With Stacia Misner

    Today's interviewee is someone who is quite a prolific writer, with her most recent book being Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services, having been released in May of 2013; and if you check out her Linkedin page (http://www.linkedin.com/in/staciamisner), you will find 12 other books she has either authored or co-authored. And that is ...

  • Why We Write #7 - An Interview with Allan Hirt

    For today's entry (and after a brief side trip through my own experiences), I move just slightly out of the SQL realm to a Microsoft Clustering MVP. Ok, in reality he is very much a SQL Server expert/guru (having taught for the SQL Server 2008 Microsoft Certified Masters courses), and has been for many years. He just spends more of his (at least ...

  • Why We Write Supplemental - I find out how long it takes to answer the questions myself

    My next entry has ran into a number of issues getting finished, and from the start, I have planned on blogging my “current” answers, so now is as good a time as any. I have taken the questions from all of the previous entries, and have left them as is, but picking the questions I wanted to answer (or wanted to force myself to answer!) To make sure ...

  • Why We Write #5–An Interview With Jason Strate

    My next guest is a person I have known for years, and have worked with on several occasions, Jason Strate (@stratesql). Jason is a very active writer and speaker (at my first SQL Saturday event, he spoke four times!), and always seems very busy. His blog (jasonstrate.com) had 23 posts just last month, and his twitter account is always active with ...
