Your SQL med kit
We like helping people and we obsess over data management the same way you obsessed over Project Runway (don’t pretend you didn’t).
Our resources below represent the growing compilation of experience and learning from the Brent Ozar team over the years. If what you need doesn’t appear below, it probably doesn’t exist on the internet.
Events – Put on a pair of headphones and tell the boss you’re learning for free at our Technology Triage Tuesday, where we gather every Tuesday to address best practices, common problems, uncommon problems, and evolving tools. Other events include conferences or seminars where members of Brent Ozar Unlimited are presenting. Pick one to attend.
Free SQL posters – Combine your love of free stuff with your love of SQL advice with your love of posters with your love of Kendra Little. (You may not know it yet, but you love her. Don’t fight it.) Print one out.
Email newsletter – Experience the eclectic brain dump that is the Brent Ozar Unlimited newsletter by signing up at the bottom of the page. “I like it, so you should too.” – Jeremiah Peschka
Scripts – We share free tools to help your SQL Server instances tell you where they hurt, like sp_Blitz™ and sp_BlitzIndex™. Download them now.
Blog – We blog a lot. It’s like a free, growing SQL textbook—except that it’s pretty funny sometimes and super dynamic. And it doesn’t have appendices that you never use. It’s not really like a textbook, actually. We’re SQL people, not analogy writers. Look: a dinosaur! Go read.
