This December I will be delivering my Being a DBA - A Day in the Life pre-conference session with Richard Douglas (t|b) for SQL Saturday #467 in Southampton, UK. This session is aimed at those who have to administer SQL Server, covering a range of topics, including:


  • Setup and Configuration
  • Maintenance Operations, Backup, and Recovery
  • Monitoring, Baselines, and Performance
  • Security and Administration

This session is primarily aimed at junior to intermediate level DBAs, however even an experienced DBA will learn new techniques for dealing with some of today's most demanding data challenges.
