Steve Jones to Run for PASS Board

July 16, 2010 at 2:24 pm (PASS) (, , , , )

I couldn’t hide the lead. Steve Jones (blog|twitter) has announced he’s running for the PASS board. I’m excited. I’m almost as excited as if I were going to run. Steve is not simply a major influencer in what we call the SQL Community. He brings two things to the party that I think are going to make him very successful on the board. First, he gets things done. He just does. He’s one of those guys that seems to keep it together, just enough, to accomplish stuff. Second, he has real ideas. He’s not someone who is simply going to iron out a wrinkle or three at the Summit. He’s going to propose stuff that will make a difference. Put those two things together and I think we’ve got reason to celebrate.

Help me out here. Spread the word on this. We need people to be aware of who Steve is and what he does.

SQL University: Introduction to Indexes

July 16, 2010 at 11:41 am (SQL Server 2008, SQLServerPedia Syndication, TSQL) (, , , )

For some crazy reason (probably everyone is on vacation), Jorge Segarra (blog|twitter) who runs SQL University has asked me to submit some material. I’ve got three posts, all coming up next week, that give a very, very basic introduction to indexes in SQL Server.
