Pre-Conference Full Day Training Sessions
Pre-Conference - Performance Tuning in 21 Demos by Brent Ozar
When: Friday, June 12, 2020 9 AM to 5 PM
Where: Loyola Marymount University, 1 LMU Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90045, Life Sciences Building, Room LSB #120 (lot D parking)
You’re a developer or DBA who wants to tune indexes and queries to make your application go faster. You don’t like learning by watching slides or reading white papers – you want to jump right into the code and see what happens. You’re the kind of person who loves watching YouTube videos that start with, “Hold my beer and watch this.”
Prerequisites: In one demo-filled day with me, Brent Ozar, you’ll see SQL Server 2017 and 2019 make questionable lifestyle choices. They’ll wildly underestimate the work required with a query, pick the wrong indexes, and jump off the roof into the pool while holding the TV – all in an effort to deliver the right query results. I will show you how to coach the database engine into better performance and less problems.
- You should be comfortable writing queries, but not at all comfortable with making them go faster.
- If you want to follow along on your own computer, get the free Stack Overflow 2013 database
- Some of the demos will only work on specific SQL Server versions, like 2019 or 2017 – we’ll note that where applicable

Pre-Conference - AzureSQL and AzureSQL Managed Instance interactive workshop by Anna Hoffman, Buck Woody, and Bob Ward
When: Friday, June 12, 2020 9 AM to 5 PM
Where: Loyola Marymount University, 1 LMU Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90045, University Hall, 3rd floor, McIntosh Room (University Hall building parking)
In this one day, hands-on, scenario-driven workshop, members of the SQL engineering team will help you translate your existing SQL Server expertise to Azure SQL including Azure SQL Database and Azure SQL managed instance. At the end of the day, you should have a foundational knowledge of what to use when, as well as how to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot the “meat and potatoes” of SQL Server in Azure: security, performance, and availability. You will learn about not only the “what”, but also the “how” and the “why”. You’ll also walk away with resources and tools so you can go as deep as your scenario requires.
After the workshop, you should be able to…
- Determine which Azure SQL deployment option (virtual machines, single databases, serverless databases, elastic pools of databases, hyperscale databases, and managed instances) and service tier should be used for scenarios that meet the needs of your application.
- Deploy, configure, monitor, and troubleshoot security, performance, and availability scenarios in Azure SQL using both familiar and new tools and techniques.
- Harness the “power of the cloud” including automation and intelligent capabilities of Azure SQL.
- Translate your existing SQL Server expertise to Azure SQL expertise.
