Yes, folks it’s that time of year again. I’ll be heading to Colorado Springs, CO this upcoming weekend to join the ranks of speakers as one of the chosen ones. As usual, I’m honored to be speaking at their event. They always have an outstanding list of speakers and to be among them is truly an honor.
This year the Colorado Springs group is doing something a little different. They are hosting a food drive in order to help the local community and I for one will be stopping at a local grocery store to load up on canned food before the event. I think that this is a fantastic way to give back to the community.
Microsoft MVP Chris Shaw did a blog post about the food drive here.
SQL Server Databaseology 201 – The Study of Database Internals
This is probably one of my favorite presentations as I get to talk about the internal structures of a Microsoft SQL Server database. I’m not talking about tables, views, or procedures but rather things such as how each row is structured, how does SQL Server keep track of your data and various ways to go diving into the depths of the internals. This presentation is packed with demo’s and fantastic #Sharknado references! We’ll also discuss how your data types matter and that despite what you’ve been told, disk isn’t always cheap.
If you haven’t checked out the schedule yet, you should. There are some fantastic speakers going to this event. Speakers like Mike Fal (B|T), Chris Shaw (B|T), Jason Kassay (T), Jason “Cannonball” Horner (B|T), Steve Jones (B|T), Meagan Longoria (B|T), Thomas LaRock (B|T), Keith Tate (B|T), Glenn Berry (B|T), Jason Strate (B|T) and many others. I assure you that this is a schedule you don’t want to miss!
