I am continuing to work toward my goal of averaging a presentation a month this year. So far I’ve presented Designing a Restore Strategy at I-380 PASS, QCPASS, and IndyPASS. I’m presenting it at the Chicago SQL Server User Group and SQL Saturday 291 – Chicago in April. The presentation centers around my stored procedure sp_AutomateDBRestores, which I hope to have documented fully this week. You can download the code here. If you are interested in attending the user group, you can RSVP here. If you haven’t registered for SQL Saturday Chicago, I recommend it highly. It is a wonderful opportunity to get a day’s worth of free training and network with your peers.
If you are looking for additional training, take a look at the pre-conference sessions being offered by Adam Machanic (b|t) and David Klee (b|t). Adam is the author of sp_whoisactive, which I can’t recommend highly enough, and is presenting Better Performance Through Parallelism. David is an expert in virtualizing SQL Server, so it is fitting that he is presenting Virtualization for SQL Server DBAs.
