PASS Data Community Summit 2022: Come See My Session, The SQL Server Performance Tasting Menu

Workin’


On top of my precon, The Professional Performance Tuning Blueprint, I’ve also got a regular session selected!

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.

Speaking At PASS This Year: Precon And Regular Session

Personable


I’ve had it with presenting online, especially full-day precons. Talking to yourself for eight hours while standing in front of a camera is about as enjoyable as it sounds.

  • It’s a lot harder to build up rapport with the audience
  • There’s no social break where you get to talk to people
  • You can’t do fun things like give away t-shirts

And there will be more MAXDOP shirts. I can’t leave my dear American friends behind.

Right On Time


This November 15-18, I’ll be presenting live and in person in Seattle at the PASS Data Community Summit. It’s available online for folks who can’t make it there in-person, too.

For a precon, I’ll be doing my world famous Blueprint Performance Tuning:

The Professional Performance Tuning Blueprint

Searching the internet for every problem isn’t cutting it. You need to be more proactive and efficient when it comes to finding and solving database performance fires.

I work with consulting customers around the world to put out SQL Server performance fires. In this day of learning, I will teach you how to find and fix your worst SQL Server problems using the same modern tools and techniques which I use every week.

You’ll learn tons of new and effective approaches to common performance problems, how to figure out what’s going on in your query plans, and how indexes really work to make your queries faster. Together, we’ll tackle query rewrites, batch mode, how to design indexes, and how to gather all the information you need to analyze performance.

This day of learning will teach you cutting edge techniques which you can’t find in training by folks who don’t spend time in the real world tuning performance. Performance tuning mysteries can easily leave you stumbling through your work week, unsure if you’re focusing on the right things. You’ll walk out of this class confident in your abilities to fix performance issues once and for all.

If you want to put out SQL Server performance fires, this is the precon you need to attend. Anyone can have a plan, it takes a professional to have a blueprint.

Regular sessions haven’t been announced yet, so keep your eyes peeled!

Hope to see you there, one way or another!
