Adam Machanic, Boston-based SQL Server developer, shares his experiences with programming, monitoring, and performance tuning SQL Server. And the occasional battle with the query optimizer.
I was just reviewing my calendar for the next several weeks and noticed that
the Toronto SQLTeach conference is now
only a few weeks away. This conference includes quite a few interesting SQL Server-related
sessions, on topics ranging from best practices, to performance, to some of
the new SQL Server 2008 features. I fully expect this to be a great show.
I am doing two breakout sessions during the main conference:
- SQL Server 2005: Authorization, Privilege, and Access Control. In this
talk I cover SQL Server 2005’s enhancements around granting permissions via
stored modules (i.e., stored procedures, views, functions)
- Designing Highly Concurrent Database Applications. In this talk I get
into the business requirements behind supporting concurrent processes, and the
areas where SQL Server (and every other database product) falls short. I then go
on to show how to solve the problems in the database programmatically.
I am also doing a full-day post-conference session on SQLCLR
programming. This will be the first time that I will be presenting all
of my SQLCLR material in a single day; should be fun. I will take attendees from
the basics all the way through some advanced applications and techniques, so if
you’re interested in becoming a SQLCLR expert I highly recommend attending.
The conference starts in just three weeks, but it is not too late to register.
