Welcome to SQLSaturday
SQLSaturday is a training event for SQL Server professionals and those wanting to learn about SQL Server. Admittance to this event is free, all costs are covered by donations and sponsorships. Please register soon as seating is limited, and let friends and colleagues know about the event.
We have some awesome Pre-cons this year! These are events hosted the day before the SQL Saturday to provide day long training on a specific subject. The Pre-cons are not free, but the rest of the event is!
Matt Brimer and Tim Costello are giving us an Intro to Agile Data Warehousing!
"Data Warehouses are expensive, right? I mean, companies charge hundreds of thousands of dollars to build them for you. What if we told you that you can have your Data Warehouse, have it quicker and have buy in while keeping your costs down and productivity high? We all know the hardest part is just getting started, in this session we will talk about general dimensional design, getting buy in from stake holders/decision makers, how to start modeling your schemas, and do it all using Agile development concepts."
Sean and Jen McCown going to walk us through The Enterprise Scripting Workshop!
"The database administrator (DBA) life can be frustrating: You rarely have time to innovate because the same tasks fill up your time day after day. Your users are unhappy about how long it takes to resolve “simple” tickets. You need to put big items on hold to manage special requests. As careful as you are, mistakes creep in the busier you get."
Kevin Boles is going to help you Tune Like A Guru!
"n this Pre-Con event we will cover a wide array of topics that form the backbone of my SQL Server performance analysis and tuning work. As a long-time relational engine consultant, I have repeatedly found that the majority of clients I work with get amazing improvements by simply putting to use a fairly small collection of knowledge and tools."
