4th of September I will hold a full-day preconference training about SQL Server 2016 performance tuning. It will be different, interesting, and hopefully funny. Real-life examples, way of thinking about the performance, and what are the ultimate limits of physical world we know of and how to approach them with SQL 2016. Prepare for no dry-talk, and to get involved in discussion. There are only 2 weeks left, so ask your boss and reserve your seat here: the link.
The next day I also have a lecture about one simple method of tracking performance history and trends. There are also many other very interesting sessions, not just for SQL Server people, but also for Web Developers, Admins, team and project leaders, about Microsoft and cloud technologies. Here is the complete agenda.
