In this podcast, I discuss a variety of SQL Server related topics mixed with a sprinkling of professional development and I talk with some of the biggest names in the industry. I want to introduce new and familiar topics and talk about them in a way you may have not considered. We are all on different stages as data professionals. I hope you will join me and Steve on the SQL trail compañeros--you won't regret it.

What's Worse than Announcing a Data Breach? You might think that's the worst thing that you could tell your boss these days. Imagine discovering that sensitive data has been exposed and you need to go inform an executive. Hopefully no one is looking to punish the messenger, but it will still be a very uncomfortable conversation. Now imagine tha ...…

I ran across a data breach at Dow Jones, the parent company of the Wall Street Journal newspaper. Apparently there was a database export that was stored on an Amazon S3 bucket. A security researcher discovered this and notified the company. Once the issue was corrected, the article linked above was published. The details note that the security ...…

DAX is the acronym for Data Analysis Expressions, and it is the formula language used throughout Power BI. In this episode we talk about DAX concepts and how they are simple and straightforward, but can be confusing for those coming from a relational database background. DAX uses some unique programming concepts and patterns which can make it d ...…
 
After SQL Bits this year, there was a discussion on Twitter about the length of the sessions and what attendees would like to see. The event ran 50 minute sessions, and that wasn't appreciated by some speakers. It's an odd length, and one that few events use. Even SQL Saturdays often do at least 60 minutes, though often I find larger conference ...…

When I started to work more closely with the product development teams at Redgate Software, I found it interesting that we devoted so many resources to user experience, testing, and other non-development tasks. Coming from more focused groups, this was new to me. At times this felt like an indulgence, and at times a lot of overhead that slowed ...…

Are you experiencing challenges managing Very Large Databases (VLDBs), or anticipate challenges with future growth? In this episode, we are joined by Aaron Hayes to discuss the practical advice on managing very large databases in SQL Server, focusing on common problem areas we have found, along with our own experiences. Topics include storage l ...…
 
I ran across a blog about encrypted databases linked from Bruce Schneier's blog. I follow his musings and writings on security ,and he recommended we read it with this sentence: "Even the summary is too much to summarize, so read it." Good enough for me, so I clicked the link and read about encrypted databases. I like the idea of stronger encry ...…

Stop for a minute and think. How much technical debt do you have in your code? Let's make this easy, take a break from this, close your eyes, and take thirty seconds or so and think about just your code. How much would you rewrite or redo if you could? Now, stop and think for another minute. How do you measure the amount of debt? What's your me ...…

I was reading a Google whitepaper and I think this was the first time I'd seen a potential loss of data referred to as a data incident. The paper deals with the response from the Google Cloud team if there are potential data loss issues, outlining a four part process for responding and ensuring the customer can get back to work. Azure has a sim ...…

How many of you grant access to schemas in your databases? I'm curious because I slowly am starting to see more and more people using schemas in their designs and not defaulting every object to "dbo". That was the default action for many developers for years, and it's still a habit of mine. Without SQL Prompt to add the schema to my queries, I' ...…

I've worked on some large scale software projects. For the purposes of this discussion, I'll define a large scale project as one that takes more than a two man-years to develop. I've never spent two years on a project, but I certainly have been involved with some that took more than two people, all more than a year to complete to some level. Ev ...…

In this corner, coming in with all its Excel glory we have Power Query! And in this corner we have a new programming language, DAX! Have you ever felt like there is a tug of war going on between these two technologies? In this episode, the team discusses the two technologies, what they do, when -- and perhaps more importantly, WHY might you use ...…
 
I've spent most of my career, actually most of my life, working with relational database systems. I tend to agree with this piece on NoSQL systems being the wrong tool for many applications. I do think that's the case, though to be fair, I haven't done anywhere near the amount of work on key-value stores, document databases, graph databases, et ...…

There's a concept in computer science of immutability. At a high level, this means once something is set, it isn't changed. Various computer science languages do this with variables, where values don't change, though variables can be destroyed and recreated. In the PASS keynote, Dr. Ramakrishnan pointed out that we have silos of data, often in ...…

We hear regularly about consumer backlash from data breaches. There are usually legal repercussions, and often hard dollars (euros, yen, etc.) being spent on things like identity protection or credit monitoring. In addition, in the last couple of years, there are plenty of people that try to limit, or cease, doing business with organizations th ...…

I'm wondering what you think. Is the idea of trading some paid time off (PTO) for student loan debt relief a good idea? That's what Unum, an insurance company, is offering. They give their employees 28 days off, which is quite generous. I don't know many people that get than many days off. If employees wish, they can trade up to 5 days for the ...…

How do you migrate 8,000 databases on a single instance in an environment that doesn't tolerate downtime? Today's episode focuses on migration strategy and how our guest Andy Levy faced the challenge of moving all those databases in the time constraints given him by the business. We also talk about some of the strategies Andy employs to adminis ...…
 
We know that not all the data in our company is important. We have databases that contain orders or inventory or schedules, often much of which isn't easily or directly related to an individual. At least, it's not if you have a normalized database. If you use SQL Server to emulate Excel spreadsheets, it's possible that most of the rows of infor ...…

If anyone sets up a new desktop machine, a new SQL Server instance, a new Elastisearch instance, or any other platform, you need to ensure there is default security.

I've a fan of Basecamp (formerly 37Signals). I think that Jason and David run their company, business, design, and software in a fascinating way. If I didn't work for an amazing company (Redgate Software), I'd might see if they want a DBA/evangelist. Over the years I've read a number of interesting posts from them, including their ReWork book, ...…

I work with data on a regular basis, and I really depend on my cell phone to help me with both work and life. I regularly make notes and get ideas for articles and editorials from things that happen when I’m on the go. Without a smartphone, I’d be juggling a notebook and pen, perhaps pulling over and making notes that I’d transcribe later. Sinc ...…

It was bound to happen. I'm sure it's happened before, but this event was interesting to me as it wasn't a customer issue, but a cloud vendor problem.

The traditional model for Power BI is to pay per user, but what if you want to use the reports in your web app and don't know who all the users would be? In this episode the team explores Power BI Embedded -- how it differs from the traditional service, what you need to set it up, and some reasons why you might explore this option over the othe ...…
 
I worked through the Y2K crisis. I call it a crisis because so many of us were worried and millions, probably hundreds of millions of dollars were spent by companies trying to ensure their software systems would work when the date changed to 2000/01/01 00:00:00. I was on call that night, celebrating the new year at home, not drinking because I ...…
