December has flown by so far and I have not been able to post a single thing! Looking back, I am actually surprised I squeezed out four posts last month – hectic is one word that can be used to describe my current project schedule. What is that phrase, the light in the tunnel is either the end or the train…..

It is good to be busy, particularly with everything that is going on – unfortunately for my blog, my recent work (past 7 months) has had nothing to do with SQL Server, SSIS, BI.. anything, so….

I am enjoying the in and outs of WCF and programming for physical devices (not truly low level, otherwise I would be going crazy). All in all, I have been working with some fantastic people and entirely stretching out my mind to work on subject areas I otherwise would not be engaged in at all.

If nothing, I have been picking up a few good bookmarks here and there related to my true interest, one that I have been sharing recently is this best practices guideline for T-SQL development, which, thankfully, is a recent posting written with SQL 2005/2008 in mind.

For those of you who either attended the BI or have been following the what was presented, labs from the Training room onsite are now starting to trickle out. Two of them related to PerformancePoint and Project Server can be found here:

  1. Enterprise Project Management and Data Visualization using Microsoft BI Tools and Solutions
  2. Performance Management Using Project Server 2007 and PerformancePoint Server 2007

Happy holidays to everyone! I’ll get this out of the way now just in case I don’t emerge until January!!
