My Upcoming Speaking Schedule

Weather Is Here, Wish You Were Wonderful

April 23rd

Boston SQL User Group

I’ll be presenting The SQL Server Performance Tasting Menu.

You’re a DBA or Developer, and you’ve been using SQL Server for a few years.

You know there are different ways to make queries faster, but you’re not sure when to use them.

I’m Erik Darling, and I’ll be your sommelier for the evening.

Over several courses of delicious demos, I’ll show you the types of performance problems different tuning techniques pair well with, and which ones to avoid.

When we’re done, you’ll understand exactly what patterns to look for when you’re troubleshooting slow queries, and how to approach them.

You’ll have the secret recipe for gourmet queries.

May 10th

I’m doing a full training day for NESQL

You’ve been working with SQL Server for a while, and you’re sick and tired of not being able to understand how it all works.
Every day, you stare at monitoring tool charts and graphs, wait stats, and widgets, and none of it seems to add up.
In this fast-paced full day of demos, I’m going to show you how queries interact with your server, and each other.
You’ll discover that concurrency isn’t just about locking and blocking; concurrency is also about hardware.
I’m going to teach you how to diagnose your worst server issues and practical ways to solve them.

See you there!

I hope to add more to the list in the coming months.
