SQLSaturday 285 (#sqlsatatl) pre-cons are now live!

SQL Saturday #285 is offering 3 preconference sessions on Friday, May 2 at the GSU campus in Alpharetta, site of SQL Saturday #285 on Saturday, May 3:
Kalen Delaney: What the Hekaton!? A Whole New Way to Think About Data Management

SQL Server Hekaton, Microsoft’s new In-Memory table technology being shipped as part of SQL Server 2014, will completely change the way you think about data management. As a DBA, you’ll need to analyze your memory and storage needs completely differently. All Hekaton data is always stored in memory, and the data stored on disk is basically just a REDO log used to regenerate the contents of your memory-optimized tables. In this full-day seminar, Kalen Delaney (a SQL Server MVP for over 20 years) will show you the in-memory architecture for your Hekaton data and indexes, and discuss what gets written to disk during checkpoints, as well as what gets logged. She will explain how the recovery process recreates your Hekaton tables. Finally, she’ll go into detail on just what it is that makes Hekaton so much FASTER!

 

Denny Cherry: SQL Performance Tuning & Optimization

In this session you will learn about SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2012 performance tuning and optimization. Industry Expert Denny Cherry will guide you through tools and best practices for tuning queries and improving performance within Microsoft SQL Server.  This session will guide you through real life performance problems which have been gathered and tuned using industry standard best practices and real world skills.

 

 

Teo Lachev: Deep Dive into the Microsoft BI Semantic Model (BISM)

The chances are that your organization has a centralized data repository, such as ODS or a data warehouse, but you might not use it to the fullest. Join this insightful full-day event to understand the importance of having a semantic layer that bridges users and data. In the Microsoft BI world, BISM consists of Power Pivot, Tabular, and Multidimensional. 

All 3 presenters are published authors and Microsoft MVPs many times over. These sessions are a huge value to spend a day with an acknowledged SQL Server

thought leader.
