Query Tuning Mastery at PASS Summit 2012: The Video

An especially clever community member was kind enough to reverse-engineer the video stream for me, and came up with a direct link to the PASS TV video stream for my Query Tuning Mastery: The Art and Science of Manhandling Parallelism talk, delivered at the PASS Summit last Thursday. I'm not sure how long this link will work, but I'd like to share it for my readers who were unable to see it in person or live on the stream.

Start here.

Skip past the keynote, to the 149 minute mark.

It's also available at, at least right now - yesterday had Days 1 & 3 combined into one gigantic video, but today is Day 2, with yours at the 140 mark.  FWIW, it's labelled "Replay of PASS Summit 2012. Enjoy!".  Maybe there's some way to get PASS to leave it up?

mbourgon: I'm sure they'll publish individual videos on their own time, probably months from now. This is a much more expedient path to getting the goods :-)

Thanks for the link! I followed link pattern and found David DeWitt audio: at around 17th minute. No video, just audio.
