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.
We have just two weeks to go before Paul Randal and Kimberly Tripp touch down in the Boston area to deliver their famous SQL Server Immersions course. This is going to be a truly fantastic SQL Server learning experience and we're hoping a few more people will join in the fun.
This is where you come in: we have a few vacant seats remaining and we need your help spreading the word. Simply tell your friends and colleagues about the course and e-mail me (adam [at] bostonsqltraining [dot] com) the names of the people you believe will register, or have them e-mail me your name and contact information when they register. For every person who buys a full-price registration between now and March 28 as a result of your help, I'll send you a $300 Amazon gift card.
Note: To keep things fair, if I receive the same name from two people the gift card will go to the first person who sent the name.
For more information on the course and to register, visit the Boston SQL Training Web site.
