Here is a link to @SqlSoldier blog on the restarting of the PASS Data Architecture Virtual Chapter.
I was involved with the Performance Chapter for about 6 months, until I changed positions at Amedisys.
If you would like to speak, please email us from the Virtual Chapter site
This weekend is time for some spiritual food listening to speakers talk about the walk with God. It will be nice to take a break from life, and work on the spirit.

Database Standards SOP
Join Normalization nut Thomas LeBlanc for a review of a standard operating procedure used among DBAs at an employer. See the changes he made after joining the BI group at this employer. The session will go through naming conventions, check list for creating a table, formatting in stored procedures, and more. A brief preview of the SQLRally talk 3rd Normal Form: That’s Crazy Talk!!! Will be given about Lookup tables. This discussion comes from 21+ years of developing databases for application developers. The use of identity columns for primary keys, and the need for a unique constraint on transaction tables that do resort to ID columns will be covered.
