Note on StreamInsight Management Service URIs

I’ll start this with a little tale, a tale of mystery and confusion. So … it starts with the installation of StreamInsight 1.2. As my team moved to 1.2, we (I) also decided to change the name of the instance that we were using for development. Even though we’ve been working with 1.2 for a little whi... [More]

Speaking @ SQL Saturday : Baton Rouge

I just got the notice that my session for SQL Saturday #64 in Baton Rouge was accepted – which means that I’ll be speaking (of course!).
