SQL MCM Training – Day 0


For the next 3 weeks I'm in Bellevue/WA for the SQL MCM training provided by Paul

Randal, Kimberly Tripp, and Bob Beauchemin of So don't expect any technical

weblog posting from me within that time. I'm sitting in the following 3 training classes:

  • Performance Tuning (5 days)
  • High Availability & Disaster Recovery (4 days)
  • Security, Powershell & Development Support (5 days)

I have already planned to attend the first week of training in London (Internals &

Performance), but I had to cancel it after the first day, because of health issues…L.

I arrived yesterday evening from Vienna/Austria, which is a very long trip across

half of the world. It took me around 24 hours from door to door until I reached Bellevue.

During my 2 long flights (VIE – IAD – SEA) I had plenty of time to go through the

SQL MCM pre-reading list and read a lot of different whitepapers. Today's day was

also about reading, working, and learning about SQL Server – always with a big jetlag

in the back…

Tomorrow is Day 1, and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm trying to blog every

day about the training, what I have learned, and how I feel during those 3 weeks of

powerful SQL Server training!

Thanks for reading
