If you are headed to Microsoft’s Tech Ed North America or Tech Ed Europe you should really look at signing up for a SQL Server Pre-Con. The pre-cons are full day sessions focusing on a specific topic, led by an industry expert. In the case of the SQL Server pre-con “Microsoft SQL Server Performance Tuning and Optimization” you’ve got an all day session with SQL Server MVPs Denny Cherry (@mrdenny | site) and Thomas LaRock (@sqlrockstar | blog).
If you haven’t signed up for Tech Ed yet it appears that there are even some early bird discounts which are available for people that sign up before the end of February for Tech Ed North America and before the end of March for Tech Ed Europe. This makes it an even better deal because who doesn’t like saving money.
Hopefully you’ll join us in Orlando for Tech Ed North America or in Amsterdam for Tech Ed Europe for a great day of SQL Server training.
P.S. Don’t forget about my 4 day SQL Server 2012 class in Los Angeles in March and SQL Excursions in Napa, CA in May.
