Demos - TechEd DAT402 - Microsoft SQL Server 2008: Performance Profiling and Troubleshooting with Extended Events

Whew! Another TechEd session completed, and now I'm done for the week. Thanks to everyone who joined me today; I had a fantastic time talking about the ins and outs of Extended Events.  Demos are attached.  I realize how complex some of these topics are, so please feel free to drop me a note in the comments here with any questions or concerns.  Also stay tuned--I'm continuing to work with and improve these samples and will be publishing updates from time to time in the coming months.
