I started out day three after the keynote by attending Adam Machanic session on Query Tuning. I must say that I will need to watch this session again once I can stream it. There was way to much good information being given for me to remember it all and couldn’t take notes for fear of missing something. Double edge sword I suppose. Didn’t take notes but couldn’t remember everything I heard either.
Lunch was set up with birds of a feather style where you could sit at a table with industry experts. Since I am in need of setting up PBM and CMS when I get back to the office I sat with Jorge and Colin. Learned a few things as well as getting a full belly.
After lunch I dropped into Glenn Berry’s session on Scaling SQL Server. Glenn presented some great information that all system admins and architects should also hear.
Next I went to John Sterrett’s session on CMS and PBM. Combine that with attending Jorge’s session on PBM in a nutshell and I truly feel like I can get this PBM project underway when I get back to work on Monday.
All in all, Friday was a successful day for me to walk away with much more knowledge than I started with.
