Episode 009 – Jorge Segarra

In episode 9 this week I’m joined by Jorge Segarra (also known as SQL Chicken), SQL Consultant for Pragmatic Works.  Jorge and I chat about the Microsoft SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse and SQL Server 2012 Licensing.  We also talk about Oracle’s Java, Adobe and plenty of more things that need complaining about.  We ended up finishing by talking about all the fun travel.

This weeks episode is a little longer than normal at almost 32 minutes.  Consider yourself warned.

Episode 008 – Robert Davis

In this weeks episode I’m joined by Robert Davis, Senior SQL Server Evangelist for Idera Software who joins me from Seattle, Washington.  Robert who is also a Microsoft Certified Master for SQL Server 2008 and I take a lighter less technical approach and talk this week all about conferences and the challenges that people can have in picking a conference to attend.  We also talk a little about some of the challenges for the sponsors of these conferences when it comes to picking a conference to sponsor.

Episode 007 – Jason Strate

In episode 7 this week I’m joined by Jason Strate, architect with Pragmatic Works.  Jason and I talk in this episode about some of the patterns that he has seen over the years as a consultant both from a technology perspective and from a business/internal politics perspective.

Episode 006 – Mike Steineke

This week I’m joined by Mike Steineke VP of IT at EdgeNet.  In this episode Mike and I discussed some of the new features of Windows 2012 including Windows and SQL Server clustering, Hyper-V v3 and more.

Yes there’s a little flub during the recording.  Mike does say that Windows 2008 R2 Standard supports clustering which isn’t correct.  SQL 2008 R2 Standard supports clustering, not Windows.

Episode 005 – Lara Rubbelke

In this weeks episode I’m joined by Lara Rubbelke a product managed from Microsoft who works with the SQL Server customer experience team.  On this episode we talked a little more about the NoSQL community and the various platforms which are available in the NoSQL world.  Lara also reveals who one of her co-presenters at the SQL PASS Summit will be, so be sure to tune in to see who her co-presenter will be.
