Upcoming Speaking Engagements in Indianapolis and Louisville

Mercy, July is flying past at breakneck pace isn't it? The best part of July passing into the history books is that August has me speaking at two SQL Saturday's, one of them being a first time for me.

On August 8 I will travel up to Indianapolis for SQL Saturday #402, a city I have been to a few times previously but not for a SQL Saturday. My most notable trip up included a stop at the Murat Theater to catch Elvis Costello back in 2002 with Laura Cantrell opening (When he gets an opening act, he does it right.) Coincidentally, Elvis will be in Nashville on the same day as SQL Saturday, and I will miss it, because, as I say when it fits my mood. SQL First!

Then I will be up in Louisville for SQL Saturday #403 for what has become an annual favorite for several reasons. Firstly, the conference is always great, and Mala and team always do a good job. But the speaker dinner has always been excellent, and introduced at least one new favorite guilty pleasure, the yummy hot brown.

Both conferences I will be presenting my presentation on In Memory OLTP:

How In-Memory Database Objects Affect Database Design

With SQL Server 2014, Microsoft has added a major new feature to help optimize OLTP database implementations by persisting your data primarily in RAM. Of course it isn't that simple, internally everything that uses this new feature is completely new. While the internals of this feature may be foreign to you, accessing the data that uses the structures very much resembles T-SQL as you already know it. As such, the first important question for the average developer will be how to adapt an existing application to make use of the technology to achieve enhanced performance. In this session, I will start with a normalized database, and adapt the logical and physical database model/implementation in several manners, performance testing the tables and code changes along the way.

I hope to see everyone who reads this blog at both events, though you don't need to come to my session both times, only I will be forced to do that.

After these events, September will be the last month of the year with any rest, as I have Orlando SQL Saturday #442 (with a Disney vacation with children attached, naturally), PASS, the MVP Summit (hopefully!), and the the holidays. Plus, I start the revision of the design book with hopes to have the first half done by the time we take down the Christmas tree!) SQL First!
