Coming up this week, I have been given the opportunity to do something I enjoy doing.  I have been invited to present to the folks in Philadelphia.

Sebastian Meine (blog | twitter) approached me during SQL Saturday in Philadelphia and I was happy to help where I could.

The topic for this presentation will be Extended Events.  We are going to try a slightly different approach, but here is what was posted in the meeting invite.

Jason Brimhall – SQL 2012 Extended Events
Extended Events were introduced in SQL Server 2008. With each edition since, we have seen a significant upgrade to this feature. Join me for a little adventure into defining this thing called Extended Events. We will discuss how to use Extended Events to aid in performance tuning and in day to day administration. We will also explore some background and the architecture of Extended Events.

As a Microsoft Certified Master/Microsoft Certified Solutions Master, I have 19 years’ experience in the technology industry, including more than 10 with SQL Server. I also earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Information Systems from Utah State University. One of the highlights of my career was co-authoring SQL Server 2012 T-SQL Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach .  I am a frequent presenter at SQL Server events worldwide, which includes SQLSaturdays and User Groups. I am also currently helping lead the Las Vegas SQL Users Group.

I am looking forward to this opportunity and to mingle with the group for a bit.  I hope to see you there.

Oh, and here is the link to the invite for the meeting.

Murder in Raleigh

sqlsat320_webI am about to set sail on a new venture with my next official whistle stop.  This year has been plenty full of whistle stops and I plan on continuing.  You can read (in full) about previous whistle stops and why they are called whistle stops here.

Suffice it to say at this point that it all started with a comment about a sailing train a few months back.

Time to sink or sail, so to speak.  SQL Saturday 320 in Raleigh will mark the next attempt at what I hope to be a repeat performance – many times.  I will be tag-teaming with Wayne Sheffield in this all day workshop event.  The session is one of two all day sessions for the event in Raleigh NC.

If you are a DBA or a database developer, this session is for you.  If you are managing a database and are experiencing performance issues, this session is a must.  We will chat with attendees about a horde of performance killers and other critical issues we have seen in our years working with SQL Server.  In short, some of these issues are pure murder on your database, DBA, developer and team in general.  We will work through many of these things and show some methods to achieve a higher state of database Zen.

Description

Join Microsoft Certified Masters, Wayne Sheffield and Jason Brimhall, as they examine numerous crazy implementations they have seen over the years, and how these implementations can be murder on SQL Server.  No topic is off limits as they cover the effects of these crazy implementations from performance to security, and how the “Default Blame Acceptors” (DBAs) can use alternatives to keep the developers, DBAs, bosses and even the end-users happy.

Presented by:

There will be a nice mix of real world examples and some painfully contrived examples. All will have a good and useful point.
