I’m teaching Mastering Parameter Sniffing at the PASS Summit!


At the PASS Data Community Summit in Seattle on November 12th, I’m teaching a one-day pre-conference workshop.

This year, the Summit is a hybrid event: you can either attend in-person in Seattle, or online via live streaming. If you attend online, PASS is recording the live stream, and you’ll be able to re-watch it during the week of the conference. This is super helpful for folks who have an emergency at work, have to drop off the call, and want to be able to catch up on what they’ve missed.

Here’s the abstract for the workshop I’m teaching on Mastering Parameter Sniffing:

You’re a database developer or DBA with at least 5 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.

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 2022. You can even follow along in your laptop if you bring SQL Server 2017 or newer and the 50GB Stack Overflow 2013 database.

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 access to the full 3-day Mastering Parameter Sniffing recordings, too! That’s a $395 value, and it’s free with your workshop admission. (You’ll get the access in class.)

Registration is open now with early bird pricing. See you there!
