Sometimes you sit in a session and there is just so little information you will get out of the session, does that mean the session is bad? Not at all, it means that it just was not right for you. Well this week I had the opportunity to host Kalen Delaney (sponsored by Dell), in Denver for a session on SQL Server Plan Caching and Recompilation, and I can tell you that this is one of the most useful session I have had the opportunity to see in years. The information that she passed along was amazing and if it did not directly impact you are the systems you are working on it will for sure help you get an additional grasp on so many topics. For example we talked about the DMV’s to a point and how to free your proc cache. Kalen mentioned that she has a more in depth session on the same topic coming on SSWUG as a workshop. I don’t think I will miss that one. As soon as I hear the date, I will be sure to post it for ya.
UPDATE The workshop for Kalen’s event can be found here. http://www.vconferenceonline.com/shows/workshops/plancaching.asp
So with that event over I have to look at the horizon. SQL Saturday is coming to Denver in September. I am really looking forward to that event, I am looking for speakers now, if you want to submit a session, that can be done here: http://www.sqlsaturday.com/52/callforspeakers.aspx
The Philadelphia SQL Server User Group, is also hosting a free on-line workshop on June 14th, along with a SQL Saturday on March 13th. The online event looks like it has some great information with the topic “Talk with SQL Server functions”
