2 times in a row! Yes, I’m selected again to speak on a very fine SQL Saturday in Exeter!
I had a great time last year and I’m really looking forward to go to the UK again. I’m going by car so if somebody needs a lift, just let me know.
The event will be held on 24th and 25th April 2015 at the Jurys Inn Hotel Exeter, like last year. Really nice hotel, believe me.
This year I’m going to talk about my DBA morning checklist. In my job as a SQL Consultant, I have my weekly recurring customers. They don’t have a DBA, so I have to perform the daily DBA checklist on a weekly basis 😉 Initially, I’ve started with executing some T-SQL scripts to verify the SQL Servers. But as more servers were installed, my DBA checklist became really time consuming and I didn’t even have the time for a coffee… In this session you will learn how you can perform your DBA morning checklist while sipping coffee. I will demonstrate how you can use Policy Based Management to evaluate your servers and how I configured my setup. By the end of this session, I guarantee you will have more time for your morning coffee!
I have the first timeslot, from 08:00 AM till 08:50, so coffee will be necessary 😉
There are of course a lot of other interesting sessions that day.
On Friday, there will be a lot of full day trainings by William Durkin, David Peter Hansen, Steph Locke, Bob Duffy, Tobiasz Koprowski, John Martin, André Kamman and Richard Douglas. More information and registration can be found here.
And looks like the pirates are coming this year :D!
Hope to see you all there in April!
