Episode 016 – Ben Miller

This week in episode 016, which is the final episode of 2012, I’m joined by fellow SQL Server MVP Ben Miller (aka @DBAduck) who is an independent consultant in Salt Lake City, Utah. Ben and I have talked back in October just before the PASS Summit, which was of course a topic of conversation as was the new SQL Server 2012 server that Ben just deployed.

Enjoy the last episode of 2012, the next episode will be January 8, 2013.

From all my guests and myself have a great holiday season and a happy New Years and we’ll see you in 2013.

Episode 015 – Argenis Fernandez

This week for episode 15 I’m joined by Argenis Fernandez who is a senior consultant for Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS).  Argenis and I discussed some of the client projects that he’s seen over the years including some absolute SQL security disasters that we’ve both seen in our days of working within IT.  It’s an interesting discussion of what not to do.

We also talk briefly about BIML which is a new language for building ETL which Argenis says that you can read about in Chapter 17 or SQL Server 2012 Integration Services Design Practices written by Andy Leonard, Matt Masson, Tim Mitchell, Jessica Moss and Michelle Ufford (available as a paperback or on the Kindle).
