Too quiet

This blog has been neglected for the past year. Ironically, I’ve been developing a fairly complex SQL Server database for a new company, which is why I haven’t spared a thought this way.

Tonight was the last Calgary PASS Chapter meet-up for 2014. Mohit K. Gupta, a Premier Field Engineer with Microsoft GBS Canada, presented a session on In-Memory OLTP, one of the very cool new features of SQL Server 2014.

I’ve been given the opportunity to speak at the January meet-up, and I think I’m going to present on Transaction Log internals. Mohit touched briefly on how In-Memory OLTP writes to the log, which coincides with my desire to get back into that side of the database engine.

Stay tuned. I have a series of blog posts planned to go with this deep dive.
