Well, looks like I’m going to Denver for the Pass 2007 summit after all. I wasn’t sure I’d be going this year.
As usual there are more fantastic looking sessions that I could possibly manage to go to. In one slot on the Wednesday, I’d need to be in four places at the same time to attend everything I want to see.
Currently on my must-see list I have the following
- More on maximising performance in SQL Server 2005 by Alex Cheng
- The Hidden Costs of Concurrency by Kalen Delaney (running concurrently with the maximising performance)
- Building High Performance SQL system using Lessons Learned from customer deployments by Michael Thomassy and Burzin Patel
- Building High Performance Systems for SQL Server by Juergen Thomas
- Performance Baselining, Benchmarking, and Monitoring by Kevin Kline
- Plan Cache Analysis in SQL Server 2005 by Jerry Foster
- Debugging the Toughest SQL Server 2005 Problems by Bob Ward (This one is going to be good)
- Practical Performance Monitoring by Andrew Kelly
- Avoiding Stored Procedure Recompiles by Greg Low
A week long overdose of performance and monitoring-related presentations with other SQL related presentations in the gaps. This is going to be good!
