On the Fourth Day of the SQL Series…


Brent Ozar (Blog | @BrentO) has done it again – started something. This time it’s The Twelve Days of SQL Series.

I was passed the baton from David Stein (Blog | @made2mentor) who covered Day 3 with a tribute to his favorite post.

And Now, My Selection:

I liked Rafael Salas’ (Blog | @RafSalas) post entitled Denali CTP 1: SSIS Parameters – Bring Them On! Rafael is a friend and fellow SSIS guy. In this post he does a good job pointing out the differences between SSIS Parameters and Package Configurations. He covers the utility of the new functionality and then does a fair job describing the difficulties he experienced with the complexity of the new features. How can you not admire that kind of transparency?

Great job Señor Salas – my brother from down south!


Before I end the sharing of my favorite post of 2010, I’d like to thank Brent – for a lot. He’s a beacon in our community, a champion for those who seek knowledge, a charter member of the Vocal Minority (I will make VM t-shirts before the PASS Summit 2011. Like the Vocal Minority, they will be too small and yet very loud.), and a good friend. Thank you.

Next Up

Erin Stellato (Blog | @erinstellato) with Day 5!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year yall!
