SQL Saturday #312 Top-Notch Precons

You might have heard by now, SQL Saturday #312 in Sacramento, CA is only 3 weeks away. But what you might not have heard is that we are having 2 top-notch Precons on Friday July 11th. I am not sure how we managed to convince them, maybe it is just the #cowtown charm, but we have booked 2 of the most influential SQL Server trainers/authors/mentors in the community. If you have not signed up yet, you need to soon! Both Precons are all day trainings and an incredibly affordable price of Just $139 until the end of the month!

Pre-Con 1:
Kalen Delaney – What the Hekaton!?

When:
Friday, July 11, 2014, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM

Where:
Patrick Hays Learning Center
2700 Gateway Oaks Drive, Suite 2600
Sacramento, CA 95833

What:
What the Hekaton!? A Whole Day on 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!

Kalen Delaney has been working with SQL Server for over 26 years, and provides performance consulting services as well as advanced SQL Server training to clients around the world, using her own custom-developed curriculum. She has been a SQL Server MVP since 1993 and has been writing about SQL Server almost as long. Kalen has spoken at dozens of technical conferences, including almost every US PASS conference since the organization’s founding in 1999. Kalen is a contributing editor and columnist for SQL Server Magazine and the author or co-author of several of the most deeply technical books on SQL Server, including SQL Server 2012 Internals. Kalen blogs at www.sqlblog.com and her personal website and schedule can be found at www.SQLServerInternals.com.
