I’m Speaking! Code PaLOUsa!

This summer I’m going to try something a little different.  I’ll be speaking at a technology conference that is not specifically for SQL Server.  That’s right, I’m branching out.  But don’t you worry, I’ll still be talking about my favorite subject, SQL Server Internals!

So I’m happy to say that I’ll be speaking at Code PaLOUsa (see what they did there? LOU? Louisville?) right here in Louisville, Kentucky on June 8th, 2017 at 3:15PM.  While I’ve never had the opportunity to attend in previous years, I’m told it is an outstanding conference.  I am really looking forward to speaking there!

SQL Server Databaseology: A Deep Dive Into Database Internals

NullPlacementMatters_2Have you ever taken apart a toaster or an alarm clock just to see how it worked? Ever wondered how that database actually functions at the record level, behind the scenes? SQL Server Databaseology is the study of SQL Server databases and their structures down to the very core of the records themselves. In this session, we will explore some of the deep inner workings of a SQL Server database at the record and page level.  You will walk away with a better understanding of how SQL Server stores data and that knowledge will allow you to build better, faster databases.

But I’m a Developer!

Ok, so what?  Do you build databases within SQL Server to support your awesome applications?  Probably.  Ever think that those database could perform better?  If so, this is the session for you!  We’ll talk about how SQL Server handles things and why a good database design is critical to your application!

Trust me.  This is a session any who builds SQL Server databases should attend.


While this conference isn’t free like SQL Saturday’s are, the price for two days of training for $300 is a good deal.   This is a small invest in your career so if you are in the area and want to learn about SQL Server internals among other things, make the investment and come see me.

Make sure to introduce yourself.  I love to meet new people!!

See you there!!
