You’re not at the PASS Summit today.

It’s alright. I know how it goes. Sometimes the boss won’t give us enough of a training budget to travel, or it’s the other guy’s turn, or maybe you work more as a developer than as a DBA so you can’t justify the PASS Summit.

I’ve got good news. Today at the Summit, we’re showing off our newest one-day training class “How to Make SQL Server Apps Go Faster.” It’s hard for me to even comprehend these numbers, but we have over 250 registrants paying $395 each. That’s incredible. It’s the best turnout I’ve ever seen for a pre-con session!

So we’re bringing the session online as our newest online training video: Make SQL Server Apps Go Faster. Here’s the abstract:

You’re a developer or DBA stuck with a database server that’s not going fast enough. You’ve got a hunch that the biggest bottleneck is inside the database server somewhere, but where? In this video series, you’ll learn how to use powerful scripts to identify which queries are killing your server, what parts of the database server are holding you back, how to tackle indexing improvements, and how to identify query anti-patterns.

In 7 hours of training videos with Microsoft MVPs, you’ll learn:

  • How wait stats tell you where to focus your tuning
  • How the plan cache shows you which queries are the worst
  • How to make fast improvements by picking the right indexes
  • How to identify and fix the most common query anti-patterns

You get 18 months of access to the recordings streamed to your desktop/laptop/iPhone/iPad, plus 3 more bonus training videos on scalability, all for just $299. Use coupon code FASTER during checkout and you get 20% off before Tuesday, Oct 22, bringing it to just $239.20.
