Event description

Description

Network, learn, ask a question, meet other folk, get fed - these are all things that happen at user group events. These events are a really great opportunity to socialise in an informal learning experience - if you want your own exposure then come and do a 1 - 5 minute nugget in front of your peers.

Remember to tell your friends and the people you work with; make sure you register as soon as you can.

17.30 – 18:00 Registration and networking

Meet and greet.

18:00 – 18:20 Round Table discussion and Nuggets - ALL
Take stock and get the latest news in the SQL Server field. This is also a great opportunity to ask any burning questions you have, may be a problem at work.

It's also a great opportunity to share your knowledge and gain exposure in the industry by giving a short 1 - 6 minute "nugget" demo/tip.

18:20 - 19:20 - Analyzing I/O Subsystem Performance

Speaker: Glenn Berry, Principal Consultant SQLskills

SQL Server is often I/O bound - but why? Do you feel lost when talking to your storage administrator? Are your storage subsystems like a mysterious black box where your databases live but you can’t go visit? This session will get you up to speed with the fundamentals of storage subsystems for SQL Server. You will learn about the different types of storage that are available, and how to decide what type of storage to use for different workload types. You will also learn useful tips and techniques for configuring your storage for the best performance and reliability. We’ll cover methods to effectively measure and monitor your storage performance so that you will have valuable information and evidence available the next time you have to discuss IO performance with your storage administrator. Come to this session to learn how to analyze I/Os as well as options to reduce the bottlenecks.

Glenn Berry works as a principal consultant at SQLskills in Parker, CO. He is a SQL Server MVP and has a collection of Microsoft certifications, including MCITP, MCDBA, MCSE, MCSD, MCAD, and MCTS, which proves that he likes to take tests. His expertise includes DMVs, high availability, hardware selection, and storage subsystems. Glenn is also an adjunct faculty member at University College - University of Denver, where he has taught since 2000.

19:20 - 19:45 - Break
Time for pizza

19:45 - 20:45 - New Stuff in SQL Server 2017

Speaker: Martin Bell

It you are lucky enough to work for a company that likes to be at the forefront of technology you will probably know what's in the next version of SQL Server, but for those of us where SQL Server 2017 is only something you are likely to get your hands on in a virtual lab or change jobs; here are my picks of things to salivate over.

20:45 - 21:00 - Feedback, Prize Draw and Close
