First, a plug. The folks at Red Gate have re-published my Tribal SQL chapter as a standalone article. If you like it, go out and get a copy of the book, as there are a number of excellent authors there.
- On May 16-18, I will be attending CarolinaCon. It’s hard to beat $20 for a weekend of security talks.
- On May 21st, I am going to present to the TriNUG Data SIG on In-Memory OLTP in SQL Server 2014 (AKA, Hekaton).
- On June 14th, I am going to attend SQL Saturday #299 in Columbus. I’m not sure yet if I’ll have the opportunity to present there, however.
Over the next few weeks, I plan to start putting up some more technical posts as I look into Hekaton and a couple of other topics. The big one that I have is an analogy: F# is to development DBAs what Powershell is to production DBAs. I want to introduce F# as a set-based functional language which plays very nicely with a SQL Server infrastructure and provides a shallower learning curve than C#.
Also, now that the weather is warming up, it’s time to start hitting the trails and visiting parks. This means I should be able to start taking more photographs again.
