I realized this morning that I will be participating in three SQL Events this week and I want to share the event information with everyone. Two of the events are available online and the other is a local user group meeting. If you have time logon onto one of the webcasts or join me at the Baton Rouge SQL Server User Group. The events are as follows:
Date and Time: 5/26/2010 5:45 PM CST
Event Location: Lamar Advertising, 5551 Corporate BLVD, Baton Rouge, LA 70808
Presenter: William Assaf
Description: What are DMV's in SQL 2005/2008, and how can you use them to improve query performance, discover indexing needs and more? Dynamic Management Views are essential tools for the SQL 2005/2008 administrator but have a wide range of applications by developers, network engineers and DBAs.
Date and Time: 5/25/2010 8:00 AM EST
Presenter: Patrick LeBlanc
Topic: Introduction to SQL Profiler
Description: The SQL Server Profiler is a powerful, but underused tool. Often developers and some DBAs don’t realize the potential the tool has to offer. In this session I will show you how to use the tool to identify poor performing queries. I will also detail steps that can be used to identify blocking and deadlocking. Finally, I will provide sample scripts and methods that can be used to proactively monitor your SQL Server for inefficient queries and stored procedures.
Date and Time: 5/25/2010 11:30 AM CST
Presenter: Max Trinidad
Topic: SQL Server and PowerShell Working w/Databases
Description: Looking into using SQLPS.exe how to work with databases on multiple SQL Servers. See How-To Configure your PowerShell profile to make your scripting environment more productive. This session will have a lot of samples".
If you have time, try to attend these events. If you are interested in speaking at any of these events please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Talk to you soon,
