Every day I consider myself extremely fortunate to be in a profession that I really enjoy, as there’s always something new to learn and experiment with. We also have a fantastic SQL Server community which I am proud to be a part of.
After being approached by Quest (now Dell Software) , I jumped at the chance to work for them because of their community involvement.
The chance to follow in the footsteps of someone like Brent Ozar (Blog|Twitter) who was so instrumental in creating SQLServerPedia (which has now been migrated to http://www.ToadWorld.com) and to work with someone of the calibre of Kevin Kline (Blog|Twitter) was something too good to turn down.
As time has progressed I have been given the opportunity to present another set of educational SQL Server webcasts in an EMEA friendly time for the remainder of 2013.
The first of these is “The Day After Tomorrow; Why You Need to Baseline” which is being recorded live tomorrow (24th July) at 09:30 GMT
Yes, I know if I had written and posted this yesterday there would have been a certain level of irony.
The abstract is as follows:
Ensuring peak SQL Server performance isn’t always easy and requires a lot of work on the part of the DBA. To maintain the best-possible performance, you need to make sure you’re monitoring the right things. But how do you know if the figures you’re seeing are good or bad? Baseline comparisons can help, and in this educational session, SQL Server expert Richard Douglas will show you how to get the most from them.
Richard will explain what a baseline is, why and when you need to take one, and how you can create one. You’ll also learn about a number of native Windows and SQL Server tools that will allow you to do just that.
You can register for this event here.
Hope to virtually see you there
