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.

SQL in Boston -- Red Gate Style

You might have heard of Red Gate's famous SQL in the City events: free, full-day educational events where you can learn from Red Gate's own evangelists in addition to various MVPs and other guests. With just a tiny bit of marketing thrown in for good measure (don't worry, it's not a daylong sales pitch).

Red Gate is doing a US tour this fall, and I'm happy to note that my fair city of Boston is one of the stops... and I am one of the speakers.

The event takes place on October 8. I'll be delivering a talk entitled "The Ten Commandments of SQL Server Monitoring."

I've not yet received all ten commandments, but my tablets are initialized and my stylus is at the ready. I'm sure I'll have some good information to share with you come October.

Hope to see you there!

I thought there were 15 commandments but one of your tablets crashed! :-P.

One of the commandments is to make sure to not anger the CEO.
