Columnstore Preso to the Oregon SQL Server User Group

In the latest-&-greatest effort in my mission to deliver my Columnstore presentation to every geekly denizen of the SQL community on the Northleft Coast of the United States & beyond, I’ll be delivering this week to the Oregon SQL Server User Group.

Though Columnstore indexes were introduced in SQL Server 2012; they're still largely unknown.  In 2012, some adoption blockers remained; yet Columnstore was nonetheless a game changer for many apps.  In SQL Server 2014, potential blockers have been largely removed & Columnstore is going to profoundly change the way we interact with our data.

Here’re the logistical details:

Title:  Columnstore Indexes in SQL Server 2014: Flipping the DW Faster Bit
Group:  Oregon SQL Server User Group
Twitter:  @OSQLd

: 1515 SW 5th Avenue, Suite 900, Portland, OR  97201  (downtown Portland in the ninth floor conference room of OHSU IT Group)
Time:  Wednesday evening April 9, 2014, 6:00p

Thanks to MVP Arnie Rowland (b|t) for the invitation as well as Vern Rabe & Paul Turley (b|t).  As I understand it, there’ll be several MVPs & MCMs there.  No pressure—and with luck, there’ll be no Stump-the-Chump.

I’m bringing a copy of the following for one lucky attendee: Professional SQL Server 2012 Internals and Troubleshooting by Christian Bolton (b|t), Rob Farley (b|t), Glenn Berry (b|t), Justin Langford (b|t), Gavin Payne (b|t), Amit Banerjee (b|t), with contributions & reviews from other big-time geeks such as Robert Davis (b|t) & Mike Anderson (b).
