I'm a forty-something Microsoft SQL Server DBA of 12+ years, a devoted husband, and a father of two young boys (with another coming soon!). I have been a DBA at a university, at a major bank, at a healthcare system, and I now work as a consultant with customers across the United States.
A couple of different events going on today and tomorrow:
Today (03/20) at 3pm CDT - "Choose Your Own Adventure: Performance Tuning" at the PASSMN monthly meeting.
What's that you say? You're not in Minnesota?
Darn. Oh well...
But wait - PASSMN is one of the chapters that runs their meetings as LiveMeetings so people everywhere can join in the fun. (There are several chapters that do this, as well as the PASS Virtual Chapters.)
Today's presentation is by Jason Strate (@StrateSQL/Blog) from Digineer and Thomas LaRock (@SQLRockstar/Blog) from Confio - they are both great presenters so don't miss out - details are here:
Then starting tonight at 7pm CDT (00:00 GMT) is the 24 Hours of PASS (#24HOP), with twenty-four individual sessions presented sequentially through the block. The presentations are always great, and this year there are multiple SQL 2012 sessions so check out the schedule and register here:
Don't miss out on these great opportunities - you have been warned!
