Come one, come all!! Oh wait, it’s too late now. I just finished giving my presentation to the DBA VC (virtual chapter). There was good attendance and there were good questions asked. My presentation was the very same presentation that I gave for SQLSat83 (sheepishly: I even used the same slidedeck).
The presentation was recorded and I will post the link for that when it becomes available. There was one goofup on my part. I went on for about 5 minutes without the shared application having actually switched – D’OH. My sincerest apologies for that.
During the presentation I made references to a few resources that I felt should be noted somewhere since I didn’t provide the exact resource during the presentation.
- Paul Randal myth-a-day concerning heap rebuilds.
- Kimberly Tripp’s information on VLFs.
- 3rd party tool for documenting a database quickly – called SQLSpec. (it’s fairly inexpensive)
I really enjoyed giving this presentation and sharing my yet-to-be finished basement with everybody. I hope to be doing more of these over time.
