SQL and the like

SQL Saturday 194

On the weekend of the 9th March 2013, the second SQL Saturday in the UK occurred.  A massive thank you must go to all the sponsors of the event, FusionIO, Confio, Nexus, Purple Frog, Redgate, Idera and Big Bang Data. Additionally big congratulations to Jonathan and Annette Allan, Thomas Rushton and Mark Price-Mayer for putting on such a great event,  everyone had a whale of a time. 

At the event,  I was honoured to present my first pre-con with my co-presenter Dave Morrison and I think our style and material complement each other well.  Together, we looked at many aspects of TSQL and Internals and received some great feedback from the attendees who, hopefully, will be able to look at their systems and working practices with much more knowledge about SQL Server than previously.

If you attended the pre-con then the slides and examples from the day are available from here.  These are password protected so you will only be able to gain access if you attended, sorry.

If this sounds like the sort of thing that you could also benefit from,  I am also delivering a two day course in London on the 19th and 20th of March looking at Advanced TSQL.  More details on this course and full itinerary can be found here.

In addition to the pre-con I also delivered a new presentation of “Estimation, Statistics and Oh My!”.  This was also well received and I got some very positive feedback.  If you attended this session the slides are available from here.

It was great to catch up with friends and #SQLFamily from home and abroad, and am now looking forward to SQLBits where I shall be again presenting,  see you there Smile
