The first of our public classes (what we call Immersion Events) in 2010 is now officially open for registrations!

We've teamed up with our good friend Adam Machanic to bring a week-long custom class to the Boston area. In this class Kimberly and I take turns teaching modules and we're both on hand to answer questions, do research, and try things out (and banter too!). The tag-team approach works *really well* and make the class very enjoyable and relaxed for those attending (and for us!).

The class will be April 12-16 2010 in the Le Meridien hotel in Cambridge, MA and is $3100 for the week. If you use the discount code EARLYBIRD you'll get $600 off for registering before February 1st.

The class will cover:

  • On-disk structures: how the data is stored
  • Index internals: how the data is organized
  • Logging and recovery: how the data is protected
  • Choosing the RIGHT Data Type
  • Table & Index Partitioning Strategies
  • Data Access
  • Indexing Strategies
  • Data and log file provisioning and management
  • Tempdb
  • Index and statistics maintenance
  • Using backup and restore (plus internals)
  • Consistency checking and disaster recovery

You can see a much more detailed course outline here and full details including how to register at Adam's Boston SQL Training website.

We hope to see you there!
