SQLPass Day 2,3,4,5,6,7

06 Nov

Definitely thought I was going to take some time out of each day to recap. Turns out that was a little ambitious.

SQLKaraoke Sunday night was my first experience with Bush Garden. If you are ever in a situation where you are trying to decide to be the 5th dude in a cab to go sing until morning, just say yes. Mrs. Bush says its ok. Thats all I have to say about that.

See, no 's'

Monday was a recovery day. I transferred from my AirBnB to the Sheraton. $199/night was a fair rate for a nice hotel right next to the conference center.

Tuesday was my pre-con. I originally had talked with a co-worker about what pre-con we were going to attend and I recommended he check out Kimberly’s session since I have seen a small condensed version already. I attended the enterprise scripting workshop by the Midnight DBAs.



The sessions I attended were:

SQL Server 2016 on Flash
SQLCAT: SQL Server HA DR Customer panel


Overview of Azure SQL Data Warehouse

The Plan Cache Whisperer

What a strange room for Jason's presentation...

SQL Server on Flash: Re-Thinking Best Practices

Part of Glenn’s DMV talk
Analysis Services: Show Me Where It Hurts
Advanced Indexing
Datazen Technical Depp Dive

Advanced indexing was a great session, but I think I have to give a slight edge to Jason’s Plan Cache Whisperer if I had to pick a favorite. Jimmy is also a great presenter and he had lots of the information on modern flash I was looking for.
