Welcome to SQL Saturday #192

SQLSaturday is a training event for SQL Server professionals and those wanting to learn about SQL Server. This event will be held Mar 2, 2013 at 2112 N 15th Street, Tampa, FL 33605. Admittance to this event is free, but we do charge a lunch fee of 10.00 so that we can provide a lunch - not pizza! Please register soon as seating is limited, and let friends and colleagues know about the event.

New this year: we are moving to HCC.  We have been experiencing growing pains at K-Force.  They have been gracious in hosting us for the last 4 years - but we needed some elbow room.  Bring your walking shoes because parking is not as convenient - but the spaces are great!  HCC is hosting our rooms at no charge - so kudos to HCC!  Register today to join the fun.

Sessions have been selected!  Please see list below the pre-cons.

We are hosting 3 pre-cons this year!

For the DBAs: SQL Server Internals from the practical angle by Dmitri Korotkevitch

The session covers how SQL Server stores the data and works with indexes; how to design efficient indexing strategies; how different database objects types implemented internally and what are pros and cons of them; explains why do we have locking and blocking in the system and how to deal with concurrency issues and, finally, shows a few methods that can help with performance troubleshooting of the system.

For the BI enthusiasts: Taking the Next Step with Reporting Services by Jessica Moss

In this full day session, Jessica teaches you how to enhance your basic reports to make them more appealing, flexible, and user-friendly.  You will learn how to create advanced reports using expressions and actions, and finally, you will learn how to use best practices to administer your reporting solution with ease.  Jessica's extensive industry experience will be apparent as she shares best practices and case studies while improving the AdventureWorks sample reports as her examples.

For Professional Development: Creating Your Best Technical Presentation: A Speaker Workshop by Buck Woody

This is a workshop-style session. That means that each attendee will be required to prepare and deliver a mini-session that will be refined throughout the day. Laptops and Internet Connectivity is required.  This is very hands on - so rgistrations on tis session are very limited.

Register today to assure your seat!
