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.
This Thursday, January 17, at New England SQL Server we'll be featuring Mark Souza, General Manager of the Data Platform Group at Microsoft. Most of you are probably familiar with that name; he's the guy who founded the CAT team, and he's been in a number of key roles in the SQL Server organization for the past several years.
Mark's topic for Thursday is Big Data and Cloud at Microsoft. The talk should be an interesting look into how the company is approaching these key areas.
If you're in New England and aren't already a member of New England SQL Server, you can sign up here. RSVP is required to attend our meetings, and we will send out the invitation e-mail on Tuesday morning.
Hope to see many of you there!
