On the week of April 8th, in the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, I’ll be delivering a few sessions at the SQLIntersection conference along with some pretty incredible company, including:

  • Aaron Bertrand, Sr. Consultant, SQL Sentry, Inc. [blog | twitter]
  • Andrew J. Kelly, Mentor, SolidQ [blog | twitter]
  • Bob Ward, Principal Architect Escalation Engineer, Microsoft [blog | twitter]
  • Brent Ozar, Brent Ozar Unlimited [blog | twitter]
  • Conor Cunningham, Principal Architect, SQL Server, Microsoft [blog]
  • Grant Fritchey, Product Evangelist, Red Gate Software [blog | twitter]
  • Jeremiah Peschka, Brent Ozar Unlimited [blog | twitter]
  • Kendra Little, Managing Director, Brent Ozar Unlimited [blog | twitter]
  • Kevin Farlee, SQL Program Manager, Microsoft [blog]
  • Kevin Kline, Director of Engineering Services, SQL Sentry, Inc. [blog | twitter]
  • Kimberly L. Tripp, President/Founder, SQLskills.com [blog | twitter]
  • Paul S. Randal, CEO / Owner, SQLskills.com [blog | twitter]
  • Paul White, SQL Kiwi Limited [blog | twitter
  • Steve Jones, Editor, SQLServerCentral.com [blog | twitter]

One thing that I love about the lineup is its unashamed coverage of Database Engine-centric  topics (box product and Windows Azure SQL Database).  There will be coverage of AlwaysOn Availability Groups, SQL Server I/O patterns, columnstore indexes, database design, performance monitoring & tuning, SQL Server databases on SMB file shares, database encryption, Filestream and Filetable, table partitioning, query execution plans, indexing, virtualization, parallelism, PBM and CMS, statistics, Hekaton, parameter sniffing, and T-SQL practices.  And with that block of database engine topics, there is still a little Hadoop thrown in for good measure (compliments Jeremiah Peschka).

What is also cool about this conference is the inclusion of track “hosts”.  Aaron Bertrand, Brent Ozar and Kimberly L. Tripp will help guide the attendees through the topics and sessions and help build on a cohesive and interactive experience.

This will be a great experience and I hope to see you there!
