SQLSaturday #944 Spokane–Randy Knight, Sara Ament, Steve Rezhener; Sponsored by SSG

SQL Solutions Group is a Silver-level Sponsor of the Spokane SQLSaturday event on March 21, 2020, and Randy Knight, SSG Founder and Principal Consultant, will present in two different sessions (one with his wife, Sara Ament). SSG Senior Consultant Steve Rezhener will present as well.

Randy’s sessions:

Understanding Transaction Isolation Levels 

SQL Server offers several isolation levels beyond the default “READ COMMITTED”. But understanding when to use each one can be daunting. Whether you are a developer who needs to understand how isolation works and and why NOLOCK is not an appropriate hint in most cases, or a seasoned DBA who needs to understand the less commonly used isolation methods, this session is for you. We will look at each level, how it impacts the engine, and examine appropriate (and inappropriate) use cases for each.

Soft Skills for Geeks: Don’t Be a Flat Boxer (with Sara Ament)

If you like being the surly IT geek who lives in a dark office and gets fed pizza under the door (i.e. a flat boxer) this session is NOT for you. However, if promotion, appreciation for what you do, and the adoration of your peers and management are appealing to you, you might want to participate in this one.

Steve’s session:

ETL, Introduction to SSIS, and third-party tools like MelissaData and CozyRoc

We will discuss ETL software, have an intro to SSIS basics, create a basic package, and implement third-party tools like MelissaData and CozyRoc.
