If you’re in town (Minneapolis/St. Paul) – just a heads-up that I’ll be presenting at the next PASSMN meeting on Tuesday, August 20th (scheduled from 4PM to 6PM).  This will be located at Microsoft, 3601 West 76th Street, Suite 600 Edina, MN  55437.

Here is what I’ll be presenting:

Title: Performance Issue Patterns

Description: While a SQL Server professional may encounter various one-off situations over the course of a career, there are also several shared patterns and scenarios.  In this session we’ll walk through a few of these patterns interactively – where I’ll reproduce the issue and we’ll work through the scenario until we get to the root cause.

If you’ve seen my Pluralsight course with the same name – please note that this session is structured differently.  I’ll be setting up a scenario (with helpful and unhelpful symptoms), kicking off the pattern and then it is up to us to collectively troubleshoot.  Plenty of scenarios to choose from over 75 minutes, so I’ll likely pick and choose scenarios based on participant interaction as we go along.  Think “Video Game for DBAs”.
