SQL Server Quickies – a new way to learn about SQL Server


We are all living in a fast moving world, especially in the IT industry. We have to learn new technologies every few months and must keep our knowledge up-2-date to be competitive. A lot of us are learning through reading, and a lot of us are also learning through watching web casts and training videos. I'm also a big fan of the later one, because it is a completely new way to learn.

Unfortunately web casts and training videos always lasts for at least an hour, and you are just staring at prepared Power Points, while listening to your trainer in the background. And sometimes it's just impossible to watch web casts, because you just have a few minutes, but not a whole hour – like when you are on the road and waiting for a train. For that reason a new idea was born: SQL Server Quickies!

The goal of my new SQL Server Quickies video series is that you can learn about specific advanced SQL Server topics within 5 - 10 minutes by listening to me working hard on the flipchart explaining various SQL Server topics. And by the end we are digging into SQL Server Management Studio exploring the illustrated concepts with a practical example.

Today I'm very proud to announce my first SQL Server Quickie about Data Pages in SQL Server and how you can analyze them within SQL Server Management Studio. My goal is to deliver around 2 - 3 SQL Server Quickies per each month about various more advanced SQL Server topics – so stay tuned and enjoy the new learning experience. You can find all posted SQL Server Quickies at my YouTube Channel at


Thanks for reading & watching!
