Did You Know? There are a few seats left in my Boston class

As I've mentioned here, for the first time in many years I have decided to offer a public class through a new training partner: Boston SQL Server Training. The class, being organized by Adam Machanic, is scheduled for the week of October 12. I have been very pleased with the interest, and the course was full enough to be guaranteed to run several months ago. There are still a few seats left however but we do expect this class to fill up.

Due to my drastic reduction in travel, this may be the last (or only?) time that I'll be teaching in Boston. Or at least, it will the the last class for quite a while.  Here's a summary of the course:

This is an advanced 5-day course designed for advanced SQL Server professionals. The course includes extensive demonstrations that illustrate the details of SQL Server internals as well as tuning techniques. This course will be presented on SQL Server 2008 and cover features specific to that version, but most of the information is relevant to SQL Server 2005 as well.

Topics to be covered include the following:

  • SQL Server Architecture and Metadata
  • Physical Storage Structures
  • Index Design and Tuning
  • Query Processing and Query Plans
  • Optimization and Recompilation
  • Concurrency Control: Locking, Blocking and Row Level Versioning
  • Query Tips and Techniques
  • Troubleshooting Tools

The course includes extensive demonstrations that illustrate the details of SQL Server internals as well as performance tuning techniques. A reference CD including all of the demonstration scripts as well as dozens of whitepapers and useful tools will be distributed at the end of the week.

Looks like fun, doesn't it?

i've been meaning to say this for a long time, but somehow to me, your "Did You Know?" posts always give me a feeling that you're being haughty, like you're the best and there's no one else. no offense meant at all; you probably didn't mean for the phrase to be thought of like this. just thought I'd tell you the feeling i get thats all (of course, this feeling stems from the fact that most of your posts have the phrase).

Anon - no offense intended here: It sounds like you have too much time on your hands if you read into Kalen's titles that much... give the lady some editorial creativity.

On the other hand, Kalen - we'd love to have you teach a course around D.C. When you get a chance, swing out East; I'd love to attend one of your performance courses!

anon, if you read enough of Kalen's blog posts you should realize that often she passes along information that she herself just learned.  So when you read "Did you know?" maybe you should also subliminally read, "Because I didn't until recently."

And, quite frankly, she is one of the best, so even if she did mean it that way (which she doesn't), I'd be okay with it.
