You’re a developer or DBA who wants to tune indexes and queries to make your application go faster. You don’t like learning by watching slides or reading white papers – you want to jump right into the code and see what happens. You’re the kind of person who loves watching YouTube videos that start with, “Hold my beer and watch this.”
In one demo-filled day with Brent Ozar and Erik Darling, you’ll see SQL Server, Azure SQL DB, and Azure Managed Instances make questionable lifestyle choices. The engine will wildly underestimate the work required with a query, pick the wrong indexes, and jump off the roof into the pool while holding the TV – all in an effort to deliver the right query results. We’ll show you how to coach the database engine into better performance and less problems.
Everybody will get their own USB flash drive to take home with the StackOverflow2013 database (just 50GB, so it’s easier to do the demos on smaller laptops), the demo scripts, and PDFs of the slides.
Attendees will also get 1 year of access to:
- Our DBA training videos: DBA Fundamentals, The Senior DBA Class, and the DBA Job Interview Questions & Answers Kit
- Our performance tuning videos: Diagnosing Slow SQL Servers with Wait Stats, How to Design and Tune Indexes, Statistics, T-SQL Level Up: Level 2, and Query Plan Analysis
- Just those above more than pay for the cost of the $499 pre-con, but..let’s throw in a stretch goal: if we sell out again, attendees get a year of SQL ConstantCare® too!
Our pre-con sold out with 360 attendees last year, and I heard from a lot of frustrated folks that couldn’t get in because they didn’t move fast enough. Don’t make that mistake again this year – go claim your spot now.
