DevLink Technical Conference in Nashville

devLINK is right around the corner, August 13 – 15, 2009! If you not familiar with devLINK, it’s a great conference right here in the “Athens of the South” also known as Nashville, Tennessee.

This year, I’m presenting a couple of sessions at devLINK. These will be updated versions of what I presented at SQLTeach in Vancouver last week.

Locking and Blocking Made Simple
A good working knowledge of how SQL Server makes use of locking and transaction isolation levels can go a long way toward improving an application’s performance. In this session, we will explore SQL Server’s locking methodology and discover techniques for enhancing query response times.

Identifying Performance Bottlenecks
When a SQL Server application is under performing, how can you isolate where the actual problem is? Would more memory help? What about adding additional processors? Or maybe some indexes are missing? In this session, we will explore how SQL Profiler and Performance Monitor can be used to uncover your SQL Server’s bottleneck.

If you haven’t registered, there’s still room available (but probably not for much longer) so visit the registration page. At $100, it’s really, really reasonable, especially when you consider all the great information you’ll receive. Space is limited to only 800 attendees.

If you decide to come, let me know and perhaps we can chat during one of breaks.
