Upcoming Community Speaking Engagements
This month is going to be a busy month for speaking!
Built-in Tuning Tools
On July 11, Kendra and I will be presenting at Oregon SQL. I’ll be speaking about using SQL Server’s built-in tools to help you tune queries to improve CPU and I/O as you develop them:
“Tuning queries isn’t a black art – SQL Server provides you with all the information you need to understand what a query is doing. In this session we’ll walk through execution plan basics and other built-in tools to make tuning queries easier.”
Failure to Launch: Code, Upload, Explode
On July 18th, I’ll giving a webinar for Red Gate Software demonstrating how to use code profiling tools to improve long term application performance.
""Before you load your valuable ASP.NET application into a rocket and aim for the cloud, let’s do a sanity check. How do you handle bandwidth shortages that never let your app reach orbit? What happens if you need more speed to haul all these users up? If your uptime flames out, how can you easily plan for splashdown?
"“Moving an ASP.NET application to the cloud may not be as difficult as putting someone on the moon, but there are a lot of places where something can go wrong. In this session you’ll learn how to handle the limitations of a purely virtual environment, measure performance and identify bottlenecks, and deal with the changing availability of resources.”"
If you’re interested in tools to help predict performance, you should sign up to attend.
A Developer’s Guide to Fixing Dangerous Queries
July 18th is a busy day! At the end of the day, I’ll be presenting at the Salem SQL Server User Group. I’ll be ending the double header with a double header of a presentation! This combines a preview of my PASS Session, A Developer’s Guide to Dangerous Queries with Built-in Tuning Tools!
"SQL Server does a good job of working with whatever garbage we throw at it, but sometimes a helping hand is needed to smooth things out. You may have meant well when you wrote that sloppy SQL, but that predicate lurking under the surface is poisoning your performance. This session will expose your worst habits, anti-patterns, and bad practices. By the time we’re done, your T-SQL will be on the path to making things right again. This talk will be therapeutic for anyone from a junior DBA to a senior developer.
“Tuning these awful queries doesn’t have to be a black art – SQL Server provides you with all the information you need to understand what a query is doing. In this session we’ll walk through execution plan basics and other built-in tools to make tuning queries easier.”
