What I'm Reading 28 Nov 2006

What I'm Reading

Its been a busy few weeks for me and I haven't had as much time to catch up on my reading as I'd have liked. This is the list of things that I have been / trying to read.

  • Software Development at Microsoft Observed
    Microsoft Research paper on developersí typical tools and work habits and their level of satisfaction with them. "The most notable take-away from the data is that developers go to great lengths to create and maintain rich mental models of code and donít rely on external representations."
  • Wild[card] thing, You make my CHAR sing
    Michael Kaplan shows some unexpected behaviour of wildcards with the LIKE predicate. If you work with multilingual data I'd highly recommend reading this.
  • Physical Database Storage Design
    Microsoft TechNet article on physical storage design for database admins on configuring SQL Server 2005 for optimal I/O performance and space utilization.
  • What do I need to know about SQL Server database engine I/O?
    Bob Dorr of the SQL Escalation Services team has written two whitepapers on the I/O system requirements of SQL Server 2000. There's also an extensive list of links to further articles about SQL Server I/O.
  • SQL Server Compact Edition under ASP.net and IIS
    By default you cannot use SQL Server Compact Edition with ASP.Net / IIS. This page explains the reason for this and the override setting to allow using SQLce with ASP.Net.
  • SQL Server Hosting Toolkit
    If you publish you databases to a ISP / externally hosted SQL Server, this new tool may be very handy.

Its always good to keep up-to-date and revise best practices recommendations from vendors. Here's my current review list:

As I previously mentioned the SQLIOSim Tool Released earlier this year. It was a rewrite of SQLIOStress as Bob Dorr explains it.

Google Reader

What I'm Reading

I read a lot of blogs everyday. Not every article, but I like to at least skim the headlines and read the ones that really interest me. There's a lot of interesting things to be learnt by reading outside your immediate field of work too. Anyway, Its hard to check up on ~200 blogs every day, so I started using Google Reader which is a web based RSS reader. I've never really like the idea of installing yet another piece of software, so Google Reader is just perfect. And I can read from home or work, know what I've seen and what I've flagged for re-reading etc. Theres an excellent tutorial available here.

Google Reader even allows you to share your streams. So here is an Atom feed of the main stream feeds I read from everyday. Add it to your RSS reader and see if you get any additional benefit from it!

Update (12 Oct 2006) - Google have added a page similar to FeedBurner where you can view same feeds I read daily as a webpage. They've also added a page of blog entries I'd highly recommend reading.
