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.
I am happy to report two more scheduled public deliveries of my new-for-2016 seminar, Tuning Your Biggest Queries! This seminar is all about how to approach difficult query tuning tasks by understanding exactly what the query optimizer is (and is not) doing with your data, how it internally works and thinks, and how you can take complete control. Thanks to great audience feedback I've made some tweaks and I think the content is getting better and better every time.
The upcoming dates are:
Charlotte, NC - September 16 - Pre-conference seminar for SQL Saturday Charlotte. Note that this is almost sold out.
Las Vegas, NV - October 10 - Pre-conference seminar for IT/Dev Connections. An early bird rate is still in effect for this one.
Hope to see you there!
