We're sitting here in the Las Vegas airport on the way home to Seattle for 3 whole weeks and I've just finished uploading the resources for the SQL Connections conference that ended yesterday.

On our Past Events page I've uploaded zip files for:

  • Our joint pre-con on database maintenance
  • Kimberly's post-con on indexing
  • My session on logging and recovery
  • My session on backup strategy
  • Kimberly's session on covering indexes
  • Kimberly's session on sparse columns and filtered indexes

We had a great week down here in Vegas – lots of very enthusiastic attendees and many (what we call) 'repeat offenders' :-) Saw a couple of great shows too – Cirque du Soleil's Mystere on Monday and Bette Midler last night. I'm not especially a fan of hers, but she was *excellent*.

Looking forward to the next Connections – cheers!
