This will be my second time speaking at SQL Saturday in Dallas. My first was last year and it was a great time. I enjoyed hanging out with all the attendees and speakers. Who wouldn’t want to have a chat with Kalen Delaney or Bob Ward? The Dallas edition of SQL Saturday is on 9/24 in Arlington at the University of Texas. Be sure to set the date I’m sure this will be a lot of fun and there will be plenty to learn!
My session is A DBA’s guide to whole stack performance troubleshooting. You’ll want to check this out.
