I’m excited to announce that Thomas LaRock (@sqlrockstar | blog) and I will be presenting a full-day Training Day (PreCon) at SQLBIts XIV in London, UK.

Our session, Designing For Performance: Myths and Misunderstandings, is going to feature hands-on labs, exercises and lots of challenges to help you master your own SQL Server superpowers. It will be held on Thursday, 5 March 2015. Registration is open NOW.

Everyone agrees that great database performance starts with great database design. So why do so many poorly designed databases exist in the world? Attend this session to understand why bad designs will always exist, what you can do to avoid them, and how best to work with them when needed.
Discussion topics will include:

  • Server/Infrastructure design
    • VM/Server configuration
    • Physical file layouts
    • HA/DR options
    • Archiving
  • Database/Table design
    • Table design
    • PK/FK choices
    • Index strategies
  • Benchmarking
    • Monitoring for performance
    • Control reports

Attendees will leave this session with an understanding of the following:

  • Why common issues are so common
  • How to better anticipate issues before they happen 
  • How to deploy and implement design choices that benefit everyone
  • Proper performance benchmarking and control reports

 


SQLBits Superheroes

 

This will be my 3rd SQLBits conference,  They are a lot of fun and jam-packed full of learning and networking.  As you can see from the video above, Tom and I will also ensure that you aren’t just sitting through 8 hours of bullet points and sparse slides with funny pictures.  We’ll be talking about what design approaches work in what situations and all the myths and misunderstandings out there about database design and configurations.

Register now and engage your own superpowers. Or just stand there looking pretty.  It’s up to you.
