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.
SQL Saturday #67 (Chicago)
About the Author: Randy Knight
In 2010, after 20+ years in the technology industry, I set out to create a world class consulting firm and in October of that year SSG was born. What I love most about what I do, and what we have created at SSG, is solving the seemingly insurmountable puzzles and problems. I was once called the “database whisperer” by a customer. In addition to 25 years’ experience with SQL Server, I am a Microsoft Certified Master, and Microsoft and Novell Certified Trainer. Prior to founding SSG, I was the Database Administrator for Fidelity Investments, EverCom Systems, and Verizon. I was at match.com as the Technical Architect for six years, and also Senior Database Engineer for the LDS Church. I’ve done lots of fun stuff in my career. The most “interesting” data I’ve worked with was at match.com just because it’s so different. I also really enjoy taking part in and presenting at SQL Server events nationwide including SQLSaturday, User Groups, SQL PASS Rally and SQL PASS Summit.
