Upcoming Presentations

Well, it’s been a while since I last did some presenting, mainly due to having purchased a new home and having gotten stuck in with renovating it.

After a successful session up at SQL Server User Group North East last week talking about using PowerShell to migrate SQL Server instances, I’ve another 3 sessions lined up around the country. 2 as part of the SQLRelay set of events, and 1 one at the Leicester SQL User Group

All 3 sessions will be my presentation “Transaction Log Basics”, this abstract should give you a good idea of what to expect:

Every SQL DBA has at least 5 transaction logs that they need to take care of. But what exactly is going on inside that file? Why can it be a performance issue? Is it really that important? And why does it keep filling my disks when I’m not looking?

This session will answer all of those questions. We’ll be looking at how SQL Server relies on it’s transaction, best practices that will keep it performing properly and explaining why it’s so vital to your databases and your job to keep is safe!

It’s a perfect introduction to SQL Server transaction logs andĀ also a good way to make sure you won’t fall into problems later on.

The dates are:

SQL Relay Southhampton – 14th October
Leicester SQL Server User Group – 15th October
SQL Relay Birmingham – 29th October (unfortunately this event is fully subscribed, but there is a waiting list you can sign up for)

Looking forward to seeing plenty of people at these events. If you’re readingĀ this and planning on attending, then let me know, or come and say hello on the day.
