A couple of days ago in Washington DC I presented the final 2016 delivery of my Tuning Your Biggest Queries seminar. The class went really well (at least from my perspective!) and it was a great end to a busy 2016 training schedule.
The seminar has been an absolute joy to teach and I think it is some of the best work I've ever put together. Advanced query tuning is my favorite topic, by far, and there are so many interesting routes through the material that it never seems to get old or boring. At every class attendees have been asking unique and challenging questions that really make things feel dynamic. Plus, thanks to Microsoft's increased release cadence and focus on performance, there are a lot of new and cool things on the horizon that I plan to add to the content in the coming months. Exciting times to be a query tuner!
So all that said, now that this year is closing down, I'm happy to report that I'm already working on more dates for next year! Here are the first two:
Boston area, January 27, 2017 - Information Here
This will be a standalone delivery, which I'm working on in conjunction with (and in support of) the local New England SQL Server users group.
Cleveland, OH, February 3, 2017 - Information Here
Just a week after the Boston class I'll do it again, this time as a pre-con for SQL Saturday 595. And hopefully I can squeeze in a visit to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
Even more dates forthcoming - stay tuned, and I hope to see you in 2017!
