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.
The next two weeks are going to be extremely busy for me, with a few different speaking engagements. I'm not sure why these always seem to come in clumps rather than being spread out a bit more, but I guess at least that way I can get them all taken care of at once!
Anyway, here's what's going on:
All of these talks are based--at least in part--on material from my almost-released book, "Expert SQL Server 2005 Development". The book will ship on May 21. Stay tuned to this blog or any of my speaking events for information on how you can win a free copy!
