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.

This November, Join Me in Stockholm and Amsterdam

Late last year, I was invited by Raoul Illyés, a SQL Server MVP from Denmark, to present a precon at the 2013 edition of SQLRally Nordic. I agreed and decided to skip the US PASS Summit this year and instead visit an area of Europe I've never seen before. A bonus came a while later when I learned that there is another SQLRally in Europe that same week: SQLRally Amsterdam. Things worked out in just the right way and today I'm happy to announce that I'll be speaking at both events, back-to-back. Should be quite a week!

SQLRally Nordic will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, November 4-6.

SQLRally Amsterdam will be in Amsterdam, naturally. November 6-8.

Yes, there is a one-day overlap between these two events, and I'll have to leave Sweden a day early to deliver my seminar in Amsterdam. First world problems.

At both events I'll be delivering my popular No More Guessing! seminar, which teaches a solid and proven performance troubleshooting methodology. I'll be adding some new content and refining some things; watch this space in the coming weeks and months for an updated outline and some information on the newer material.

Both events are now open for early registration, and both events have an open call for speakers. If you're in Europe, or would like to visit, I highly recommend taking advantage of one or both of these options!

Look forward to meeting many of you at these events. See you in November!
