  • SQLRally Nordic and SQLRally Amsterdam: Wrap Up and Demos

    First and foremost: Huge thanks, and huge apologies, to everyone who attended my sessions at these events. I promised to post materials last week, and there is no good excuse for tardiness. My dog did not eat my computer. I don't have a dog. And if I did, she would far prefer a nice rib eye to a hard chunk of plastic. Now, on to the purpose of ...

  • Query Performance Sessions in Stockholm and Amsterdam

    As previously mentioned, I'll be delivering my full-day ''No More Guessing'' performance troubleshooting seminar at both the Stockholm and Amsterdam SQLRally events. In addition to the seminar, I'll be doing two breakout sessions at each event. It's going to be a busy week! But luckily for me, I'm doing the same things in each ...

  • 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 ...

  • Query Tuning Mastery at PASS Summit 2012: The Demos

    For the second year in a row, I was asked to deliver a 500-level ''Query Tuning Mastery'' talk in room 6E of the Washington State Convention Center, for the PASS Summit. (Here's some information about last year's talk, on workspace memory.) And for the second year in a row, I had to deliver said talk at 10:15 in the morning, in a room used as ...

  • Two New Slide Decks. Plus, the Week in Colorado.

    I had the honor of traveling the great state of Colorado last week, speaking at the PASS chapters in Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Denver.  At all three events, we had a stellar attendance and, at least in Denver, broke all the records in recent memory both in terms of overall attendance and in first-timers. ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 - Zen and the Art of Workspace Memory - Demos

    What a rush. Standing on the stage in an almost-full 1,000-person room, I (very) momentarily wondered what I'd been thinking when I submitted a 500-level talk for the biggest SQL Server conference in the world. But despite a rough start--my laptop crashed and I had to reboot it two minutes into the talk--I found my rhythm and the entire 90 minutes ...

  • NOSQL- A Quick Overview

    Several attendees at the SQLRally were asking about NoSQL (''Not Only SQL'') and its benefits. This article gives a quick overview: HERE. Also, two good resources have come out from my friend Guy Harrison. This piece on Cassandra, one of the most popular NoSQL databases, was published a while back in Database Trends and Applications Magazine. I ...

  • What PASS sessions will I try to attend?

    Every year at PASS, I do the same thing. I hmm and haw over which sessions I want to go to, and I end up making some tough choices at game time.  This year I believe I'll be pretty busy, so my typical pie-in-the-sky view of how much I'll be able to attend just isn't going to pan out.  Instead, I have selected 5 sessions that I really ...
