My New Role at Fiserv: Patterns and Practices Manager

In addition to the Data Architect role that I will continue to play, I am now the Patterns and Practices Manager for the Digital Channels Enterprise Architecture team.

Here is the text right out of the March 12th e-mail that announced the change:
Rob will take on responsibility for managing our processes and best practices within the Group. He will continue to lead our Database design discipline, but will also take on management for the Corillian [Professional Services] Architects. Michael Hallabrin, Tim Sarna, and Rocco Martin will report in to Rob as part of the CO-L Solutions Architecture team.
I am really excited about this new role. Michael, Tim, and Rocco are a bunch of really smart guys, and I am enjoying working more closely with them.


Presenting on SQL Server Change Data Capture in Eugene

I will be speaking to the Eugene Area SQL Server User Group on CDC.

Topic: Deconstructing SQL Server's Change Data Capture

SQL Server's Change Data Capture feature was introduced with SQL 2008, but how much do you know about how it works? After attending this session, you will understand the various parts involved in CDC, know how to set it up, and know the relative performance effect.

Our focus here is not just showing how CDC works on the surface (there are many articles that cover that), but rather to see what we can find out about the various moving parts within SQL Server that actually make CDC function. Understanding the internals will help in an overall understanding of CDC.
