Performance, Discounts, and an Excuse to Visit New York City

A couple of weeks ago I announced a two-day advanced performance seminar in New York City, which will be delivered in July. This seminar will cover SQLCLR and parallelism techniques to help you take performance well beyond the levels that typical tuning exercises yield. Check out the links for more details, including a full outline.

Thanks to the great response so far, we have decided to extend the early registration discount for a few more days. You have until the end of the day tomorrow, June 3, to take advantage of the $100 savings off of the $1050 course fee. To get the discount, use the code EARLYBIRD on the registration page.

Finally, I would like to point out that one of the main reasons that I chose New York City for this course is that it is by far my favorite city to visit. I just noticed yesterday that a bunch of hotels are offering a free third night this summer--so I hope that you'll be able to come for the course and then stay an extra night or two to enjoy the city. Note that we also have a hotel discount available to course attendees, unrelated to the third night offer. Let me know if you would like more information on that.

Hope to see you in New York next month!
