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.
If you attended my session this morning, thank you! It's always flattering when people are willing to wake up before 8:00 a.m. just so that they can hear a talk about SQL Server. I had a great time doing the talk, and I think it went well. My sincerest apologies to the person I accidentally hit in the head with the t-shirt; I will work on my throwing arm and hopefully do a better job with the swag tossing next time!
I had a few requests for the demo scripts, and they are attached to this post. Please let me know if you have any questions or issues with them. And thanks again for attending.
For those who were not there, the presentation was recorded, and I believe it will be posted online at some point, so keep your eyes open for that.
