Video And Links For My SQLBits Session

Fast Pants


I was quite honored to not only have a precon at this year’s SQLBits, but also a regular session on Friday about indexes.

And yes, I made good on the fundraising effort!

Thank you to everyone who donated, attended the session, and of course the lovely people at SQLBits for putting on a great conference. Hope to see everyone again next year…

SQLBits Precon Logistics: Last Call!

Sell Out


If you’re coming to my SOLD OUT precon, and really, I appreciate that you all chose to come to my session, here’s some stuff you should do:

Join the Slack channel! Forgive their recent logo sins, and hang out in there to ask questions, yell at me, or ask when lunch is.

You can do that by going to http://sqlslack.com/ and entering your email address to get an invite. Once you’re in, you’ll wanna join #sqlbits-tuning.

If you wanna play along with any parts of the demos, you’ll wanna download this copy of the StackOverflow database.

Fair warning: if you’re gonna do this, do it well in advance. Downloading over public W-i-Fi is quite a gamble.

Lastly But Not Leastly


Check out all the other great sessions available that have seats remaining in them.

My SQLBits Schedule and Precon Trailer!

HELLO MANCHESTER!


If you’re in town for SQLBits this week, come say hello to me. I have stickers.

I’m running a precon on Thursday, and I have a regular session on indexes Friday.

The session Friday is attached to a fundraiser, and I’d be ever so grateful if you’d consider donating.

Trailer Park


Here’s the trailer for my precon. I rather like it. Hopefully you do, too.

A Bit Of A Contest For SQLBits

On Twitter


(More unfortunate words were never spoken) I decided to offer a free three hour block of time to whomever named the cadre of under-performing queries we’re going to be looking at as part of my SQLBits precon.

This is fair. I have no idea how to use MARS.

This might be too painful for anyone to endure.

Said every front end dev everywhere

Well, I do have some ideas for SQL Server…

Rob kindly overestimates my ability to retain information.

Open To Everyone


If you’re not on Twitter, not following me, or just missed it in the sea of having better things to do, leave a comment with your idea.

I do occasionally like blog comments.

Costumery For A Good Cause

Charity Ain’t Just A Dancer


Whether or not you’ll be at SQLBits, I’d be quite grateful if you considered giving.

It’s for a good cause, and, well, I already bought the outfit.

Time to work on that mustache.
