Every weekday during the month of October, one of the modules from my Fundamentals classes will be absolutely free to watch. But you gotta watch it that day – you snooze, you lose.
For this week’s TempDB class, you don’t have hands-on labs, but if you want to follow along with the demos, I’ll be using the same 50GB Stack Overflow 2013 database we used during the first two weeks.
- Oct 24 – How the Version Store Affects TempDB
- Oct 25 – How Temp Tables are Different from Regular Tables
- Oct 26 – How Table Variables Can Be Better Than Temp Tables
- Oct 27 – Temp Tables & Table Variables at Scale: PFS/GAM/SGAM Contention
- Oct 28 – How Memory-Optimized Table Variables Reduce Contention
- Oct 31 – How Execution Plans Use TempDB
Eagle-eyed readers will note that this isn’t all of the modules from each class, nor is it all of my Fundamentals classes. That’s because this whole thing is a diabolical mind trick, dear reader. I aim to get you hooked on the quality of my online training, and then come November 1st, when my annual Black Friday sale starts, you’ll be ready to get out your wallet – or your boss’s wallet – to get a Recorded Class Season Pass: Fundamentals, or Mastering, or the Level 2 Bundle when they go on sale.
Thank you Brent for offering this free month of training, I have watched several videos and this week of tempdb training has been especially helpful. I noticed that the dates on this post don’t line up though. For example, “How Memory-Optimized Table Variables Reduce Contention” is labeled with tomorrow’s date (Oct 28) but I just watched it today (Oct 27). Given the pattern, I am guessing that tomorrow you will unlock the Oct 31 session: “How Execution Plans Use TempDB.” So, at the risk of sounding like I am complaining about missing out on training that you have provided for free, will there be anything on Mon Oct 31? 🙂
Again, thank you so much for the free training!
I tend to leave 1-2 videos open at a time because if I don’t, people bitch about the training not starting at their specific time zone.
Isn’t it amazing how some people will absolutely whine and complain about everything they get for free? Truly incredible. Thankfully, you’re not one of those people, Karl.
Enjoy the free training!
Got it, that makes sense. And yes, that is pretty sad when people complain about free stuff. Thanks again for your contributions to the Community!
Thanks so much for the free training! I saw all but one video this month and they were all great. We met in Omaha once and got a picture together. My developer group uses it as background whenever I start extolling your virtues in a Zoom meeting. 🙂 Hope you keep up the marvelous work. Thanks again!
My pleasure, glad you liked it, and thanks for the chuckles!
