SQLBits 2017: We Have Disco
SQLBits has always been about the education. Next to the learning, though, the theme party is the major highlight of each trip, and they out-do themselves every. single. time. This year, the theme is disco, and I can't wait to see all the bellbottoms and butterfly collars.
SentryOne has a spectacular presence, once again, with eight speakers in total, including our Performance Bootcamp. John Martin has actually put together a "set list" if you will, describing what sessions we'll be giving and when; I'll give you the short version:
- John Martin
- Richard Douglas
- Kevin Kline
- Scott Fallen
- Steve Wright
- Melissa Coates
- Allen White
I am giving a full-day pre-con on Wednesday, April 5th, entitled "Becoming a Better SQL Server Developer." In the morning, I'll talk about all sorts of fundamentals: how the engine works, table design, indexes, and statistics. In the afternoon, it will be all about the meaty goodness: bad habits, best practices, workstation configuration, and even some quizzes.
On Friday, I'll be giving a session on new T-SQL capabilities in SQL Server 2016 and v.Next. This will be a quick run-through of what's new and what's coming, with demos driven by the audience.
And whenever we're not in a session, we'll be at our booth, so feel free to come by just to say hello, or to find out how our solutions can work for you. You might even win an Amazon Echo!
