My SQLbits sessions

Since today its official, I'm presenting 2 sessions at the SQLbits conference in Liverpool (http://www.sqlbits.com) from September 30 – October 1. Here are both of my session abstracts:

Advanced SQL Server 2008 Troubleshooting

It's Friday, 05:00pm. You are just receiving an email that informs you that your SQL Server has enormous performance problems! What can you do? How can you identify the problem and resolve it fast? Which tools provides you SQL Server for this task? In this session you will see a lot of different tools with which you can do effective SQL Server troubleshooting. You will learn how to identify performance bottlenecks with those tools, and how to resolve the identified bottlenecks.

Understanding SQL Server Execution Plans

Do you know SQL Server Execution Plans? Yes! - and can you read/analyze them? No... For the beginner it is not very easy to understand and explain execution plans generated by SQL Server for your queries. Therefore this session gives you a good overview and understanding about SQL Server execution plans and how you can read them without reading through complete books. In this session you will see the basic constructs of an execution plan, and how SQL Server uses them to translate your SQL based query to an internal format which is executed by the execution engine of SQL Server. After attending this session you are able to understand and analyze execution plans generated by your queries, and how you can tune them with the adoption of additional indices. Finally you will also see which additional information about your queries an execution plan will expose to you.

I'm looking forward to see you in one or both of my sessions J
