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.
Just a quick note to say thanks to Andy Leonard for coming all the way to Boston to do a talk at the New England SQL Server Users Group last night. Andy's topic was Change Data Capture and SSIS 2008, and in addition to those core areas he showed the group a variety of related tips and tricks. He is not only extremely technically saavy, but also a very engaging speaker -- a really great combination and I'm glad that we had the chance to bring him out.
If you're in the area, make sure to stop by for future meetings. More great stuff coming up, but the speakers have quite a challenge given the standard set by Andy last night!
