SQLSaturday #233 Washington D.C. –Jason Brimhall and Wayne Sheffield

Jason Brimhall and Wayne Sheffield, Microsoft Certified Masters and Principal Consultants at SQL Solutions Group, both presented at the Washington, D.C., SQLSaturday event on Dec. 7, 2013.

The duo also had a pre-con, “Murder They Wrote

Join Microsoft Certified Masters, Wayne Sheffield and Jason Brimhall, as they examine numerous crazy implementations they have seen over the years, and how these implementations can be murder on SQL Server.

Jason’s topic was “SQL 2012 Extended Events”

Extended Events were introduced in SQL Server 2008. With SQL 2012, we have seen a significant upgrade to this feature. Join me for a little adventure into what extended events are. We will discuss how to use extended events to aid in performance tuning and in day to day administration. We will also explore some background and the architecture of extended events.


Wayne’s topic was “Crazy Things That Developers Do”

Throughout my career, I’ve seen developers do some pretty crazy things to databases (and truth be told, I’ve done some of these myself!). Come to this session to learn what we do (from opening up the database to SQL Injection attacks, how SQL can use Referential Integrity to optimize queries, and the pitfalls of using NOLOCK), why it’s bad to the database server (or your career)… and alternatives that can be used instead. Trust me… your DBA will love you for making these changes.
