She’ll show you how simple configuration changes can sometimes save hundreds of hours of developer time.

My goal is for you to understand your SQL Server’s behavior– and learn how to change it. When I’m not figuring out the solutions to your database problems, you’ll find me at user group meetings in Portland, Oregon. I also love to draw.

    Kendra. One stupid question. (sorry about that) What’s the difference between SQl server 2008 and SQL server 2008 R2. I have read many articles and none have a clarification on this. Please help. I am lost in this aspect of sql.
    Thanks and many thanks for all the hard work.
