I need your help


HelpMeThe Situation

On the 19th November I am going to be presenting two sessions for the Luxembourg PASS chapter at the Microsoft offices there, you can register for the event here.

One session is on Wait Statistcs, which is fine. I’ve done it before as a webcast for Dell Software and will be doing a slight variation on it for both this event and the PASS DBA Virtual chapter on 12th November. If you can’t make it to Luxembourg then you might want to consider registering.


What I need from you

The second session is all new. I’ve written content for it but then stopped, I want this to be a session for the community by the community. I’ll still write all the content and present it, you don’t need to do that bit! I‘m just looking for some of your input.

To expand further, this session is about SQL Server 2014 new features. My slant on this is I want to highlight features that EVERYBODY can use. This isn’t going to be just another session on Hekaton. I want it to be something that everybody in the room can take something away from.

I’d like you to take a moment and think about the following questions:

  • Are you using SQL Server 2014?
    • What is your favourite Standard Edition feature?
    • What SQL Server 2014 Standard Edition features would you like to know more about?
  • Are you looking to upgrade to SQL 2014?
    • What features are you most looking forward to?
    • Is there anything that you are worried about?

If you could spare a minute to leave a comment about the areas that you care about then I would be very grateful.
