My upcoming SQL Server Trainings

(Be sure to checkout the FREE SQLpassion Performance Tuning Training Plan - you get a weekly email packed with all the essential knowledge you need to know about performance tuning on SQL Server.)

The 1st half of 2013 is almost over, so it’s time to announce my upcoming SQL Server trainings for the rest of 2013. Besides my traditional SQL Server Performance Tuning & Troubleshooting Workshop I have added 2 brand new workshops into the schedule:

  • DBA Essential Days
  • Without a Trace – Extended Events in SQL Server

The goal of the DBA Essential Days is to provide in a 2-day long course all the necessary DBA skills that are needed by Accidental or Involuntary SQL Server DBAs. In this course I’m talking about Hardware Selection, Installation, Configuration, Backups & Recovery Strategies, Database Maintenance, Baselining, and Performance Monitoring for SQL Server. This brand-new workshop runs at the following locations and dates:

  • October 28 – 29 in Zurich/Switzerland
  • November 11 – 12 in Vienna/Austria
  • November 25 – 26 in Kontich/Belgium

Further information about the workshop, the detailed agenda, and the registration details can be found here.

Besides the DBA Essential Days I’m also introducing the new 1-day workshop Without a Trace – Extended Events in SQL Server. As you might know, SQL Server Profiler and SQL Trace is a deprecated feature since SQL Server 2012, which means it will go away from the SQL Server product over the next release cycles. The follow-up technology that was introduced with SQL Server 2008 is Extended Events, a new lightweight tracing infrastructure. The goal of that 1-day workshop is to introduce Extended Events to you, describe the architecture, and show you with a lot of different demos and examples how you can migrate from SQL Server Profiler/SQL Trace to Extended Events, and how to do performance troubleshooting with it. I’m running this workshop at the following locations and dates:

  • October 30 in Zurich/Switzerland
  • November 13 in Vienna/Austria

Further information about the workshop, the detailed agenda, and the registration details can be found here.

Because of the high demand of high quality SQL Server trainings in Belgium, I’m also running my SQL Server Performance Tuning & Troubleshooting Workshop from November 18 – 22 in Kontich/Belgium (near to Antwerpen). The workshop now runs for 5 days, and includes the 1-day workshop about Extended Events, because troubleshooting SQL Server performance problems without Extended Events is since SQL Server 2012 almost impossible J. You can find further information about the workshop in Belgium here.

I’m looking forward to see some of you at one of the upcoming workshops to share my SQLpassion with you J

Thanks for reading
