Headed to Chicago tomorrow for SQL Saturday #67. Heading out a day early to attend a pre-conference seminar on Friday on troubleshooting and performance tuning. While I feel pretty strong in these areas, one thing I haven’t done as good of a job of as I should is keeeping up on new features to assist with this in SQL Server 2005 and 2008. Dynamic Management Views, Extended Events, and so forth. So this should be a good class to help teach an old dog new tricks. Then on Saturday I get to present the XML session again which I created for Utah Code Camp. Looking forward to it.
If your health is suffering, you’re not as much of an asset to your employer, so it’s in their and your best interests to ensure as much “balance” as possible.
