The SQLBits conference in Great Britain videotapes their sessions and makes them available for public viewing. This weekend, they announced that last fall’s sessions are online now – and it’s all free!
Here’s my Performance Tuning for Race Car Drivers presentation. (Yes, I do insult Americans within the first 30 seconds, but I don’t think I do that again through the rest of the presentation. Maybe.)
And here’s my Using Perfmon and Profiler presentation:
If you’re viewing this article in my RSS feed, you’ll need to visit my site to play the videos.
But wait – there’s more! If you liked those, go to SQLBits.com and scroll down. There’s a ton of great sessions you can choose from, including:
- Designing for Simplification by Rob Farley
- Optimistic Concurrency Internals by James Rowland-Jones
- Strapped for Cache? SQL Server Memory by Christian Bolton
- Virtualizing SQL Server by Justin Langford
- When a Query Plan Goes Wrong by Simon Sabin
And much, much more.
If you like these, take a minute to thank them for this free training. I really applaud Simon Sabin (Blog – @Simon_Sabin), James Rowland-Jones (Blog – @JRowlandJones), and everybody else at SQLBits who puts on such a killer free event for the community, and then goes above and beyond by even making the video sessions completely free. Go get your learn on!
Want to learn about SQL Server in the cloud? I’ve got something for you too – check out the latest episode of RunAs Radio. I talked to the guys about Azure, which goes commercially live today.
