Registration is Open Now for My SQLBits Workshop!


Registration just opened up for my SQLBits workshop on Mastering Parameter Sniffing! Move fast – due to COVID, they’re spacing out the attendees, so there are even less seats available than usual. My workshops usually sell out quickly, so if you want a seat, you’ll need to hustle in.

Here’s the session abstract:

You’re a database developer or DBA with at least 3 years experience performance tuning queries and indexes.

You already know you have parameter sniffing issues, and now you need to figure out how to fix it. In this one-day class, you’ll learn how to reduce the blast radius with index changes, query tuning, and database-level settings. You’ll also see firsthand how SQL Server 2017, 2019, and 2022 try to reduce it with adaptive joins, adaptive memory grants, automatic tuning, and caching multiple plans.

Join me at SQLBits on Tuesday, 8 March, at ExCel in London for a one-day workshop. I’ll be there in person – my flights are already booked, and I’m excited to see everybody in person again. The conference is taking great precautions: masks are required at the event, tables will be spaced apart, and proof of double vaccination, Covid-19 antibodies, or a negative lateral flow test (within the last 48-hours) will be required.

This course is 100% demos: the only slides are the introduction and recap. The rest of the time, I’ll be working live in SQL Server Management Studio and SQL Server 2019 (or 2022 if Microsoft releases the public bits quickly enough.) You can even follow along in your laptop if you bring SQL Server 2017 or newer and the 50GB Stack Overflow 2013 database.

I’m taking the best modules of my 3-day Mastering Parameter Sniffing class and doing it as a training day session. We’re going to be moving quickly and covering a lot of ground, and I know it can be tough to keep up. That’s why attendees will also get one year’s access to the full 3-day Mastering Parameter Sniffing recordings, too! That’s a £695 value, and it’s free with your workshop admission. (You’ll get the access in class.)

Register now. See you in London!
