Speaking at the Los Angeles SQL Server Professionals User Group

I haven’t updated this blog in a long time so I wanted to put in a quick post about a session that I will be presenting at the Los Angeles SQL Server Professionals User Group this Thursday, January 20th. The session, “Top 10 Query Optimizer Topics for Better Performance”, is the same topic I presented a couple of months ago at the PASS Summit in Seattle.

The meeting will be hosted at the UCLA campus and will start at 6:30 PM with Allen Berezovsky who will talk about File Stream in SQL Server. My session will follow next. More details and directions can be found at the Los Angeles SQL Server Professionals Group website.

I hope to see you there,

  2. I see you are one of the leaders in this technology here in Southern, CA. Parsons recently brought our I.T. back in house (3 years ago) and we are growing. There is a critical need for a solid SQL Server DBA/Developer to be based out of our corporate offices in Pasadena. (other options are Houston or Richardson, TX)
