Based on most of the comments, I'm alone on this one, but what the heck, I'll stick my neck out.

I'm not crazy about it. I don't like the laundry list approach. I see that you identify the common issues, but I don't get a sense that you're going to tell me enough about them to get me to go to the session. I'd rather have a bit more traditional discussion style abstract.

There. Let the rock throwing begin.

rock pile -1 ( this should add some credit :-D )

This might actually work in a formula like the chalk talk sessions at SQLPASS.
(especially because they were brought by respected members of the community)

Fair point. I was hitting a number of misc items that get you into trouble, but that might not be a great approach.

Maybe use the rule of three's like you suggested for mine? I thought it was a good idea.

I'll certainly Google for it but what is the "Rule of Three's"?

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

Steve suggested that I use the "rule of three," basically list three things, "The top three sql server mistakes are...", "Three things people always drop the ball on are..." Not sure if you'll find it in Google.

Good feedback on this, however I'm more wondering if you think the abstract is well written. Does it make you want to go, or not go, to the session?


I can't figure out who your audience is.

DBAs?

Developers?

Seems to be a hodgepodge mix from the topics.

This could well be an appetizer kind of session.

Just get an overload of hotspot topics to pick a detailed session on the issues that got your interest.

Might even work very well for newbe and a refresh minded audience.

However, you might not be remembered due to the lack of details because of time constraints.Whistling

More good feedback. I somewhat aimed this at accidental DBAs, but I think I've moved into development a bit and probably need to split this off to two sessions.

Many accidental DBA's are developers and may be doing both roles.

Technically i'm a Stealth DBA (I do dba things cause we, as a company, need it...even though its not in my job description, and noone else is doing it).
Topics that bridge both worlds are VERY beneficial for me.

Plus, it can be a more holistic view of Sql Server. ie. Here is how developers and DBAs can coordinate to avoid the worst problems.

At the end of the day its all about the server running as fast and smoothly as it can while being as flexible to end users.
