I’m Speaking at Microsoft Tech-Days 2010 in Edmonton

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be speaking at Tech-Days 2010 in Edmonton this year on SQL Server Administration Tips and Tricks.  Session description below…..

“As the DBA of your organization (accidental or not) it is critical that you know exactly what is going on in your SQL Server environment.  In today’s world you are being asked to manage more databases with less resources so it is important that you do your work as efficiently as possible and automate as much as you can.  We’re going to be looking at some common DBA tasks and demonstrating alternatives for not only executing those tasks but monitoring and alerting on them as well.  In this demo heavy presentation my goal is to help you understand what you need to know, show you where you need to go to get it, and provide scripts and examples on how to do it better.  If you think just because you still use SQL Server 2000 that these tips and tricks wont be for you, think again.  Although the focus of this presentation will be on tools native to SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 we will be demonstrating how to take those tools and utilize them for use with both SQL Server 2000 and 2005 as well.”

So if you’re planning on attending Tech-Days I look forward to seeing you there and getting a chance to “geek out” with you.

    Congrats! That’s awesome. Now if work would only allow us to go I’d pop in and check it out. See if you can get a video version of it and post it on your site.

    Again that’s an amazing accomplishment. Colin on the Speaking Circuit!

    Thanks!! 🙂

    No idea about if they are recording it or not but yeah it should be pretty fun and exciting.

    Got some other big news on the horizon potentially… can’t “officially” talk about it yet but let’s try and meet up for lunch sometime soon and get caught up.

    Have a good one!
