I am speaking at SQL Saturday #190 in Denver, CO on Saturday, September 28th, 2013. I’m also delivering full day pre-con on Friday, September 27th. We will talk about SQL Server Internals and cover a lot of things – internal storage, locking, troubleshooting, internal implementation of the database objects and so on. There are still a few seats available and I will be happy to see you there.
Speaking of the past presentations – the slide decks and demo scripts for both parts of “All About Indexes” presentations are available for download from the Presentations page. Keep in mind, that slides are in Russian.
The slide deck for “From S to 3XL: Implementing Data Partitioning and Tiered Storage” session will be available for download after PASS SUMMIT.
South California is great! I’ve never seen seven-stuck-lanes-in-each-direction highways And thanks to the crew! They did the wonderful job!
Slide decks are available for download. Also, if you are interested in the locking and blocking, check the following page. It has a lot of additional information.
Again, thank you for attending! It was the great event!
I’m doing a few presentations in the next a few weeks.
February 16th, 2013: I’ll speak at IT Pro Camp in Sarasota, FL. I will present two sessions – “SQL Server – Practical Troubleshooting” and slightly refreshed version of “Between Ground and Clouds”.
February 28th, 2013: I’ll do online presentation for Moscow SQL Server User Group. I’ll talk about practical troubleshooting of SQL Server with wait statistics, DMV and Performance Counters.Will be presented in Russian – let me know if you want to attend.
March 1st, 2013: I’ll host SQL Saturday #192 one day pre-con – “SQL Server Internals from the Practical Angle”. I’m going to talk how SQL Server works under-the-hood in the way that helps you to apply the knowledge to day-to-day tasks.
March 2nd, 2013: I’ll present at SQL Saturday #192. Will have either one or two sessions about locking and blocking. We will use bag of candies as the replacement of Power Point
Finally, on March 21st, 2013 I’ll present at 24 Hours of PASS Russia. I’m going to talk about Data Partitioning. This is the different session that I did at TechEd, or, better say, a lot of content would be different – I’m not going to talk about scaling-out and Azure and focus on the regular installation of SQL Server. I’ll show a couple of deep-dive demos focusing on how to move data between different disk arrays keeping the system online. Even with the Standard edition of SQL Server.
Hope to see you there.

I’m very pleased to say that I’ve been awarded as Microsoft SQL Server MVP. Thank you very much for all your support! It would not be possible without all of you!

And, by the way -
I cannot believe that year past since I started the blog. It happened right before SQL Saturday #40 event in Miramar, FL. Well, in 2 weeks this wonderful place is going to host SQL Saturday #79 event and I’m going to present 2 sessions there:
- Data Sharding in OLTP systems. I’m going to talk about various approaches that can help when you need to reduce SQL server load. Even if this session announced in BI track, it does not have anything to do with BI – it would be “system architecture” type talk focusing on the sharding and vertical partitioning.
- Anti-patterns in Database Design and T-SQL code. Self-explanatory. This one should be fun – no Power Point slides -Management Studio and SQL Code only.
Stop by and say “Hello!” if you’re planning to attend!
Tomorrow, February 24th, 2011, I’m doing the presentation “Database design for non-database architects” for Tampa IASA chapter. I’m planning to give the high level overview of SQL Server table and index internals, talk about locking and concurrency and focus on anti-patterns and ORM framework analysis.
I’m going to speak on Sql Saturday #62 this Saturday – January 15th in Tampa. I will talk about a few specific code patterns that can help with refactoring and code optimization. No Power Point slides. Please stop by and say “hello” if you’re attending!
