Earlier last month, I had the opportunity to present at SQLPASS 2014. The event was held in Seattle in November 2014. I had a great time attending this event and I presented on the topic Database Worst Practices on November 5, 2014.
Here is the title and abstract of the session, which I had presented at SQLPASS.
Secrets of SQL Server: Database Worst Practices
“Oh my God! What did I do?” Chances are you have heard, or even uttered, this expression. This demo-oriented session will show many examples where database professionals were dumbfounded by their own mistakes, and could even bring back memories of your own early DBA days. The goal of this session is to expose the small details that can be dangerous to the production environment and SQL Server as a whole, as well as talk about worst practices and how to avoid them.
Shedding light on some of these perils and the tricks to avoid them may even save your current job. After attending this session, developers will only need 60 seconds to improve performance of their database server in their SharePoint implementation. We will have a quiz during the session to keep the conversation alive. Developers will walk out with scripts and knowledge that can be applied to their servers, immediately after the session.
The session was extremely well received as I had received wonderful feedback. I am honored that it was so well attended and the audience learned it. Here are a few photographs from the event. The session is recorded and available to SQLPASS subscribers who have paid for the event.
If you have not attended my previous session, you can subscribe to my newsletter over here, I will be sending various resources used in this sessions in emails.
