I am proud to be selected to speak at this weekend’s first ever SQL Saturday in Charleston, SC. I am very excited be a part of their first SQL Saturday and to get back to one of my favorite cities. I grew up not far from here, and it is exciting to revisit the town and then see the sights.

Title: Database Health and Performance

Abstract: Everyone knows that sick servers generally do not perform well. But, how well are your servers running? Let’s perform a health and performance check! In this session, we will perform a holistic system health and performance analysis where we dive through common tasks that you should routinely perform. Once the health and performance analysis is completed, a remediation plan is developed. Baselines are established and updated. Coming out of this session, you will have a tried and true methodology for examining your system state, checking for unhealthy components, analyzing performance, and keeping things that way for years to come.

Come see me in Room 3 at 1:30pm! You might win something fun!

Following this event, I am traveling to the SQL PASS Summit! It is the premier event for SQL Server professionals every year, and I whole-heartedly say that you should attend. I am so very lucky to be presenting a spotlight session at this year’s conference entitled ‘Squeezing Top Performance from your Virtualized SQL Server‘.  I hope to see you all there.
