We’re really excited to share these!
First, we’ve added a new video class – How to Read Execution Plans with Jeremiah. You’re comfortable writing queries, but some of them are slow – and you need more ways to tune than just adding indexes. You’ve heard that you should read execution plans, but you don’t know where to start. Learn more about reading execution plans.
Next up, our 2015 in-person training class lineup. Our students told us they loved our 2014 classes, but they wanted more of everything. We’ve lengthened the classes – we took the performance one from 3 days to 4, and added a couple of new 5-day classes:
Advanced Querying and Indexing: 5-day in-person class. Do you need to learn to write the fastest queries possible for SQL Server? In 2015, join us for five days of advanced TSQL query and index optimization. Join us in Chicago or Portland.
SQL Performance Troubleshooting: 4-day in-person class. You need to speed up a database server that you don’t fully understand – but that’s about to change in four days of learning and fun in Chicago, Denver, and Portland.
Senior DBA Class of 2015: 5-day in-person class. You’re a SQL Server DBA who is ready to advance to the next level in your career but aren’t sure how to fully master your environment and drive the right architectural changes. That’s about to change in one week of learning and adventure in Chicago and Denver.
Some of our students (especially the consultants) told us they wanted to really go in-depth and take two weeks of classes back-to-back. To make that easier, we lined up our classes and put them in some of our favorite cities, at the best times to spend a weekend between classes:
Denver in February (hey, it’s ski season!):
- February 2-6 – Senior DBA Class of 2015
- February 9-12 – SQL Server Performance Troubleshooting
Chicago in May (best time to visit our fair city):
- May 4-8 – Advanced Querying and Indexing
- May 11-14 – SQL Server Performance Troubleshooting
Portland in August (Oregon summers are beautiful):
- Aug 3-7 – Advanced Querying and Indexing
- Aug 10-13 – SQL Server Performance Troubleshooting
Chicago in September (not too hot, not too cold):
- Sept 14-18 – Senior DBA Class of 2015
- Sept 21-24 – SQL Server Performance Troubleshooting
