SQL Saturday #347 Washington, DC–Randy Knight, Wayne Sheffield, Jason Brimhall



SSG President Randy Knight, Wayne Sheffield, and Jason Brimhall—all Principal Consultants and Microsoft Certified Masters—all participated at the SQLSaturday event in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 6.

Randy’s topic was Locks, Blocks, and Deadlocks Oh My!

Managing concurrency is one of the most challenging aspects of working with any enterprise DBMS. There is much confusion out there about locking, blocking, and deadlocks. In this demo heavy session we will clear up the confusion.

Wayne’s topic was SSMS Tips & Tricks

Almost everyone uses SSMS to write queries and to browse around on the server – but do you use all of the features that SSMS offers to increase your productivity? Come to this session, consisting mostly of demos, to see features built-in to SSMS that will improve your experience and productivity. Time permitting, we’ll also go into some 3rd party products that also increase your productivity in SSMS.

Jason’s topic was Murder They Wrote!

Jason, a Microsoft MVP, will examine numerous database design and coding implementations that he has seen over the years. He will explore these implementations and show how they can be murder on SQL Server in terms of performance, security, storage and even accuracy. You will learn how you can identify these “killers” and how you can implement alternatives that will keep data professionals, management, and end-users happy. All while keeping your databases happy, secure, turbo-charged and healthy. This is the solo version of the joint version normally done with Wayne as an all-day precon.
