Hey Kids! Let’s Put on a Show at the Old Barn

Alternate Title: I’m traveling a bunch. Let’s get together and talk.

A bunch of trips and presentations coming up, so I thought I’d share. First, I’ll be SQL Saturday Omaha for my first time ever presenting in Nebraska. I’m excited to add this state to my list (which is almost over 40 now). If you’re not doing anything August 15th, let’s have a chat. Next, fingers crossed, I’ll get selected to fly back to my home state, Oklahoma, to go to SQL Saturday OKC. These guys put on a great event and hey, it’s Oklahoma so how can it be bad. I hope they announce soon. I need to schedule my flights. This one is on August 29th.

September also has several events. First, I’ll be at SQL Saturday Las Vegas on the 12th of September. My first time at this event so I’m looking forward to it. That’s followed immediately by a pre-con and a couple of sessions at ITDev Connections. I love inter-disciplinary conferences because it gives you a chance to branch out and learn more knowledge across the stack. It’s extremely useful if you’re getting into DevOps (which you should be). My pre-con is on query tuning and execution plans, using one to help the other. This is a great event with a lot of excellent speakers. Go here to register. But I’m not done. Down in San Diego, at their SQL Saturday on the 19th, I’ll also be doing a pre-con on query performance tuning on the 18th. I’ll see if I can’t squeeze some 2016 stuff in there too. Click here now to register for the precon.

But we’re not done. In October, I’m going to hop the pond for one my absolute favorite events, Red Gate’s very own SQL in the City: London. It’s a great event with a great collection of speakers. I won’t lie, we’re going to focus on Database Lifecycle Management (DLM), but there’ll be sessions on query tuning and all sorts of other stuff as well. It’s focused on the Red Gate tools and, let’s face it, it’s a Red Gate style event, so it’s fun and entertaining. If you really do want to drill down on DLM, there’s also the all day seminars that Red Gate is hosting that week. We’ve put a lot of work into these and I think they’re some pretty amazing hands on classes that will get you started automating your own database deployments. Also, while I’m over there, I think I may find my way to a SQL Relay event, so eyes peeled.

Later in October, well, it’s the PASS Summit. ‘Nough said. I’m doing a session focused on the beginner that’s all around statistics. They’re so important to everything you do with queries, that it’s a good idea to spend some time understanding them before you get into all the craziness of query tuning. If you’re attending Summit, please stop by my session. Click here to register for the PASS Summit. Fingers cross, I might be at SQL Saturday Portland if I get accepted.

One more that I don’t mean to leave off, but I think it deserves it’s own paragraph. Right before the PASS Summit, we’re bringing SQL in the City back to Seattle. That’s right, another shot at seeing the great stuff we’re going to bringing to London, plus a few different things (we mix up the speakers and sessions to help keep it all fresh).

I have published two books, ”Understanding SQL Server Execution Plans” and “SQL Server 2008 Query Performance Tuning Distilled.” I’m one of the founding officers of the Southern New England SQL Server Users Group and its current president. I also work on part-time, short-term, off-site consulting contracts. In 2009 and 2010 I was awarded as a Microsoft SQL Server MVP. In the past I’ve been called rough, intimidating and scary.
