My Public Events RoundUp

As a part of my careers goals, I am trying to remain involved in the community through various engagements and events.  Recently, I was able to present to the South Africa Johannesburg group as a part of SQL Saturday 83.  I posted an announcement on that opportunity here.

I wanted to briefly cover my experience with that presentation.  I was quite pleased with the presentation and know that I could have done better with it.  That is where practice comes into play with each presentation.  One area of concern was trying to invoke group participation.  The group in JHB participated quite well – considerably better than the last time I presented this particular presentation.  I don’t think the book giveaways had much to do with it since I didn’t even mention that.  Also, they were participating well before we did the first book question.  I might have been a bit punchy during the preso – lack of sleep and sinus meds might have contributed.

I would like to thank everybody in JHB for a great job.  It was nice having a panorama camera available so I could see the group too.  That was very helpful.  I have not heard back yet if the recording is going to be made publicly available.  If so, I will pass it along so more of you can poke fun at me. 😉

This week, I will be giving that very same presentation to the DBA Virtual Chapter.  That presentation will be Wednesday May 11, 2011 at 12PM Mountain Time.  Since this is a virtual chapter, that means the presentation will be done via livemeeting.  If you are interested, you can register and attend the meeting via these links.

Registration: https://www.livemeeting.com/lrs/8000181573/Registration.aspx?pageName=c7pzbgr25qrpqxt5

Attendee: https://www.livemeeting.com/cc/8000181573/join?id=P4583F&role=attend

I hope to see a few people on for this presentation.  It is a low-level kind of presentation and is aimed at creating useful documentation with sql scripts (thus helping reduce cost).

SQLHelp

  • @Jamie_Wick: CheckDB on one db causing 833 error on tempdb (4 data files & not growing). Any suggestions/recommendations to help alleviate? #sqlhelp
  • @SQLHA: @richardslim You also have the very real problem of paths and crossing the streams. #sqlhelp
  • @SQLHA: @richardslim I can also poke myself in the eye with a sharp stick, but would never do that in real life. #sqlhelp
  • @jdanton: @gm_praveenk My rec would be to look at guides for migrating to virtual. Same concepts. Except more limited IO and network #sqlhelp
  • @jdanton: @richardslim It’s possible, but I wouldn’t do it, aside from testing. #sqlhelp
  • @richardslim: Is it possible to have traditional fail-over Clustered instances with locally installed instances in an AG on the same 2 servers? #SQLHelp
  • @gm_praveenk: Hi all Can any one help out in documentations of migration of physical sql server to cloud (hp cloud). #sqlhelp Thanks
  • @SQLSoldier: @DBArgenis @SportsNut70 More specifically, look for updates to heaps. #sqlhelp
  • @DBArgenis: @SportsNut70 that is orthogonal to the storage you use. Look for changes in database schema and workload. #sqlhelp
  • @SportsNut70: We migrated to Flash storage and now see Forwarded Records/sec avg about 5000. On SAN, we had 0. Should I be concerned? Is it Flash?#sqlhelp
