Adam Machanic, Boston-based SQL Server developer, shares his experiences with programming, monitoring, and performance tuning SQL Server. And the occasional battle with the query optimizer.
I just got a request for my slides and demos from PASS, so I figured I would post a link to them here in case anyone else wants to check them out.
The demos cover protected data sections, SqlConnectionStringBuilder, MARS, SqlBulkCopy, and SqlDependency. Just for the record: I make no guarantees about the quality, usefulness, or lack of bugs in the code -- use at your own risk. I probably don't really need to say that, but I've seen some strange things lately and I'm getting paranoid!
Anyway, you can download here.
Enjoy, and as always feel free to leave me a comment if you have any questions, feedback, or anything else.
