Top 10 SQL Server Mistakes, First Mistake, Missing Kevin Kline Oct. 15, 2009

Topic:         Top 10 SQL Server Mistakes
Date: Thursday, October 15th, 2009 6pm
   
Speaker:      Kevin KlineSQL Server encompasses a wide variety of domains – administrative, development, and design. But despite years of experience with relational databases, SQL Server practitioners frequently make the same mistakes over and over again. Wouldn’t you like to learn about those mistakes before they ever happen?  This session will answer questions like: -       What’s the most common Transact-SQL programming mistake and how do I fix it?-       How do database designers cause problems for future generations of application developers and database administrators?-       Why do inexperienced database administrators make their own job more difficult and less efficient?  There are a short list of mistakes that, if you know of them in advance, will make your life much easier. These mistakes are the “low hanging fruit” of application design, development, and administration. Once you apply the lessons learned from this session, you’ll find yourself performing at a higher level of efficiency and effectiveness than before.

Sayed Ibrahim Hashimi On Simplifying Web Deployment Tool (MSDeploy)

My pal Sayed is giving a live presentation on MSDeploy as a part of the MVP TV program this Wednesday, October 14, 2009.

Abstract

Deploying ASP.NET Websites has always been a challenge and different teams have used different approaches to overcoming those challenges. Microsoft has offered some support for making deployment easier in the past. For instance they first introduced Web Deployment Projects for Visual Studio 2005, and also have a version for 2008. Web Deployment Projects do greatly simplify the process of calling the aspnet_compiler and aspnet_merge tool but even though their title states "Deployment" they had no support for physically deploying the site. Now Microsoft has introduced the Web Deployment Tool, also known as MSDeploy. MSDeploy will bridge the gap between taking a web site and physically deploying it to its destination. With MSDeploy you can easily and very effectively perform tasks such as pushing an ASP.NET site (Web site, Web Application Project, ASP.NET, etc) from one machine to several other machines. This is achieved by the target machines having the MSDeploy Remote Agent Service installed and running. You can sync two different Web Sites that are hosted in IIS, you can create a web package (simply a .zip file) and use that as your source, you can sync two different folders, and many other options. Another compelling feature of MSDeploy is that it will be integrated into Visual Studio 2010. From Visual Studio 2010 you can compile your ASP.NET Web Application Project and then create the Web Package which contains all your content files plus IIS settings. This one file will full describe your web.
