Back in April when nearly everyone was locked down, we moved all our Chicago classes to October. Now, given the continuing COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic and the many travel restrictions companies have in place, we decided that in-person classes are just not feasible this year and we’ve moved all our classes to be completely online!

They will now be presented using a series of half-day WebEx sessions, and recorded so attendees can re-watch at their leisure. This is a huge change as we’ve never had recordings of our flagship Immersion Events available before.

Here are the details:

  • IE0: Accidental/Junior DBA
    • Eight half-days, from Monday, 9/14/20 through Thursday, 9/17/20, and then from Monday, 9/21/20 through Thursday, 9/24/20.
  • IEAzure: Azure SQL Database, Azure VMs, and Azure Managed Instance
    • Six half-days, from Tuesday, 9/15/20 through Thursday, 9/17/20, and then from Tuesday, 9/22/20 through Thursday, 9/24/20. If needed, a seventh half-day will be on Friday, 9/25/20.
  • IECAG: Clustering and Availability Groups
    • Three half-days, from Tuesday, 10/6/20 through Thursday, 10/8/20. If needed, a fourth half-day will be on Friday, 10/9/20.
  • IEPTO1: Performance Tuning and Optimization – Part 1
    • Ten half-days, from Monday, 10/5/20 through Friday, 10/9/20, and then from Monday, 10/12/20 through Friday, 10/16/20.
  • IEPTO2: Performance Tuning and Optimization – Part 2
    • Ten half-days, from Monday, 10/19/20 through Friday, 10/23/20, and then from Monday, 10/26/20 through Friday, 10/30/20.

Each day will run as follows (all times are in Pacific Daylight Time):

  • 9am to 10:30am: morning session
  • 10:30am to 11am: morning Q&A
  • 11am to 11:30am: break
  • 11:30am to 1pm: afternoon session
  • 1pm to 2pm: afternoon Q&A

We hope to “see” you there!
