Webcast turnout was fantastic

Published On: 2008-02-07By:

Thanks to all who attended this morning webcast ‘Under The Hood of SQL Server – Checking Out Internals’.  This mornings webcast was a complete success.  The number of people attending was fantastic, and some excellent questions were asked.  If I remember correctly there were about 140 people in attendance.  For those who weren’t able to attend the webcast this morning, it was recorded and as soon as it’s published I’ll post the link to the video.

If you have a question specific to the webcast please email my good friend Andy Grant with your questions and he will route them to myself or Jason Hall.

Don’t forget to check out the tech brief which we were talking about.

Slide Decks and Sample Code from SoCal Code Camp

Published On: 2008-01-28By:

The SoCal Code Camp was this last weekend.  I had a great time attending and speaking at the code camp this time around.   I hope that everyone who attended my sessions had as much fun attending the sessions as I did speaking at them.  I did my best to make them as much fun and interactive as I could.

As promised here are the slide decks and sample T/SQL code from the four sessions.  Everything is within a single ZIP file.  I’ve included two copies of each slide deck.  One in the Office 2007 format, and one in the Office 97-2003 format.  They are identical to each other, but I wanted to include both so that people with the older version of Microsoft Office can see the deck without having to download and install the patch which allows Office 2003 to view Office 2007 files.

The sample scripts which I’ve included are all run against the AdventureWorks database or the AdventureWorksDW database (check the USE commands at the top of the scripts).  If they need a different database they will create the new database.

Session 1 – SQL Server Query Tuning (SQL 2000+)

Session 2 – SQL Server 2008 Resource Governor (SQL 2008 CTP5+ only)

Session 3 – SQL Server Service Broker in the Real World (SQL 2005+) (I’ve fixed the problem with the single server script that we were having at the Code Camp.  Turns out I had left the route in place which is why the message never showed up.  The first script didn’t run correctly because I had run the server to server script on my virtual machine and the route was left by accident.)

Session 4 – SQL Server 2008 What’s on the Horizon (SQL 2008 CTP5+)

If you have any questions about these slide decks or sample code feel free to post a comment here, or drop me an email.
