Speaking at SQLBits and the PASS Summit

image

I am really excited that this weekend I will be flying to the UK to participate in my first European SQL Server conference, SQLBits XII, where I am scheduled to present 2 sessions. SQLBits XII, the largest SQL Server conference in Europe, will be held at The International Centre in Telford, UK from July 17th to July 19th. My first session, Dive into the Query Optimizer – Undocumented Insight, is scheduled for Friday 18th at 12:15 PM, room Ironbridge 3 and the second one, Understanding Parameter Sniffing for Saturday 19th at 8:15 AM, room Wenlock 1. These are sessions I have presented previously at the PASS Summit.

In addition, I got selected to present a session at the PASS Summit 2014, which will be held again in Seattle, WA this November. The PASS Summit is the largest SQL Server and BI conference in the world and this would be my 12th year attending, and my 7th year as a presenter. My session, Query Processing in In-Memory OLTP, will cover query processing and optimization with the new Hekaton database engine, a topic which I also cover in a chapter of my new book.

Just a few days after the sessions for the PASS Summit 2014 were announced, I also got the nice surprise that I was awarded as a SQL Server MVP. It is a great honor for me to be part of this awesome team.

Finally, my new book SQL Server 2014 Query Tuning & Optimization has been completed and will be soon published by McGraw-Hill Education.

I look forward to meeting lots of SQL Server professionals on these conferences. See you all in Telford and Seattle.

    I enjoyed your Parameter Sniffing session at SQLBits. It was very enlightening but oh so quick… I have notes saying further reading on SQLBits website, but I’m struggling to find anything (this was my first time).
    Do you have a link to the DMV queries, etc that you used?
    Many thanks.
