SQLBits recap

(Be sure to checkout the FREE SQLpassion Performance Tuning Training Plan – you get a weekly email packed with all the essential knowledge you need to know about performance tuning on SQL Server.)

Wow, what an intensive last week! Last week I attended the SQLBits conference in Telford/UK – in the middle of nowhere :-) . Telford itself is around 30 minutes in the west of Birmingham (where I flew into), but there is almost no civilization – or I didn’t have found it…It was the first conference in my life where I haven’t seen anything else besides the hotel and the conference venue. This makes life very simplified.

During the conference I have presented 2 sessions. On Friday I have talked about Latches, Spinlocks, and Latch-Free Data Structures, and on Saturday I have presented my session about the Dangerous Beauty of Bookmark Lookups. Both sessions where high attended, and I had a huge fun to present them.

I have also already submitted my session materials (slides & samples) to the conference owners, so you should be able very soon to get the materials through the conference website. Besides the amazing speaker lineup, we also had a lot of fun at the Steampunk party on Friday, which was THE highlight during the conference! I can’t tell you too much about the party itself, because what happens at SQLBits stays in SQLBits ;-) .

I got pink hairs!

Thanks for reading
