SQL Saturday Edmonton

SQL Saturday Edmonton On April 22, I'll be speaking at SQL Saturday Edmonton (#SQLSat594) about SQL Server Data Compression. If you're in the Edmonton area, you should register and join us for a fun and free day of Microsoft SQL Server training. There will even be prizes! SentryOne is sponsoring the event and we'll be giving away a license for SQL Sentry, which provides SQL Server and Windows Performance Monitoring, Event Management, Top SQL, Block Chain and Deadlock Analysis, Intelligent Alerting, and so much more! I dare say you will be the envy of other attendees if you win this prize.

Last week, I presented the session at the Maine PASS user group. That's about as close of a Canadian test audience that I can get in the States. ;-) The slides from that presentation can be downloaded here. As I mentioned during my presentation, please check the notes for additional information and T-SQL to copy/paste.

Data Compression Blog Links

I've blogged a lot about SQL Server Data Compression. Here's a list of those blog links mentioned in the slides:







See You in Edmonton!

I'm looking forward to speaking in Edmonton. Not only will it be my first time in the city, it'll be my first visit to the province of Alberta.

Travel from Portland, Maine to Edmonton, Alberta

It appears that I didn't leave enough time to walk there. Also, why would I walk there? That path looks like it goes directly through where the hungry bears are currently waking. Hmm... "bears" might make a good GPS avoidance option now that I think about it.
