I am currently working on the two sessions that I will be presenting at the PASS Summit: Inside the SQL Server Query Optimizer and Parameter Sniffing: the Query Optimizer vs. the Plan Cache. In addition, I will be presenting these two new sessions in other SQL Server events in Southern California including SQLSatuday #95.
First, I will be speaking at the Los Angeles SQL Server Professionals Group on Thursday September 15th. The meeting will be hosted at the UCLA Anderson School of Management and will start at 6:30 PM. I will present only one session, Inside the SQL Server Query Optimizer, in this meeting. You can find additional information about the meeting and directions on their website.
Two days later, on September 17th, I will be speaking at SQLSaturday #95 in San Diego, CA. Of course, this SQLSaturday will also have many other great speakers and the final schedule is already posted here. In addition to presenting both of my sessions described before I will be participating in the Ask the Experts – SQL Server Q&A session coordinated by Thomas Mueller. For more details and directions for SQLSaturday #95 please go to their website here.
On October 7th I will be presenting my Query Optimizer session at the Orange County SQL Server Professionals User Group in Mission Viejo, CA. Details and directions will be posted soon on their website here.
Then it is time for the PASS Summit, the largest SQL Server and BI conference in the world. The PASS Summit is hosted again this year in Seattle, WA and it is scheduled for October 11-14. The schedule for my two sessions is not final at the moment of writing this but so far it looks like I will be speaking on Wednesday and Friday.
I am flying back from the PASS Summit on Saturday and planning to present my two sessions at the SoCal Code Camp the following day, Sunday October 16th. The SoCal Code Camp is a community driven event for developers to come and learn from their peers. At this moment they are still accepting sessions so no schedule has been created yet. You can register, find additional information and directions on their website here.
Finally, although I am not going to be speaking, I will be attending SQL in the City in Los Angeles, CA on October 28th. SQL in the City is a one day SQL Server training event which will include several SQL Server MVPs and you can look at their site here for more details and information.
I look forward to meeting lots of SQL Server professionals on these events.
