SQL SERVER – Tell me What You Want to Listen – My 2 TechED 2011 Sessions

I am going to present two sessions at TechEd India on March 25th, 2011.

I would like to know what do you want me to cover in this session.

I promise following for both of my sessions:

  1. I will share the scripts demonstrated in the session right at the end of the sessions
  2. The sessions will be 300-400 level but I promise to make the concept very simple
  3. Less slides and lots of meaningful Demos
  4. Session close to real life cases and scenarios
  5. Surprise gifts to best participants
  6. I promise to answer all the questions either in session or right after the hall after the session
  7. Lots of Technical Education and FUN!

Please leave your comments with your expectation and if you are going to attend the session do let me know here. We will for sure meet at the event and do some interesting talk. You can read the abstract of the session over here.

  1. Pinal,
    I would like to learn more about how a virtualized environment might impact the WAIT stats. We have been seeing a lot of I/O related waits (PAGELATCH I/O) on a virtualized development environment running large databases (300GB+). The same database performs great on a physical machine.

    I would like to thus understand the impact virtualization might have on wait stats.

  3. Hi Pinal,

    I have a question. I have a table that has multiple values. I have no problem getting the multiple values in one column with a comma between each item using “FOR XML PATH….”. I would like to know if I can instead of using a comma between the items, I can use a carriage return. I tried using CHAR(13) + CHAR(10) but, it didn’t work.


    The items in my table column looks like:
    219984 C,C,A,B

    I would like for it to look like:
    219984 C

    Is this possible in sql server.

    I really need help.

    Thank You.
