Im not doing a tremendous amount of public speaking this year and concentrating on more professional matters, however im pleased to say that on Friday 5th December i will be presenting a day long pre-con on Query Processing and internals at SQL Saturday 467 in Southampton.
We will be spending the whole day looking at the optimizer and picking apart its internals to show how it generates a plan from your given sql. This will cover a wide range of topics, starting from execution plan basics and working ourselves through to demonstrating internals with undocumented traceflags.
Other precons are available if this doesn't float your boat. Full details, pricing and hotel discount codes are available from
