101 Session:

Come tell us what you want to lean about! Tired of sitting through boring performance tuning sessions? Or do you love that stuff and feel like you could never get enough? Dying to know when somebody is going to come talk about powershell? Let us know! This month, in lieu of our normal 101 session we would like to kick off the year by allowing the membership to suggest and vote on topics they would most like to hear about.

Main Talk:

Performance tuning – how the tools fit together
Rick Lowe

Summary:SQL Server gives us a sometimes befuddling array of tools we can use for performance tuning, and there is no shortage of people offering deep dives into how to use them. What sometimes gets lost in the shuffle is information on when and how the tools are best used. This talk is a high level overview of performance tuning with a focus on how
Rick believes all of the widgets and gadgets fit together, with stops along the way to highlight performance tuning tips.

Bio: Rick is a Microsoft Certified Master of SQL Server and our current Vice President of Promotions. He has more than a decade of experience working with SQL Server, initially as a developer but over time drifting into a DBA role. He enjoys getting up early in the morning to look at execution plans more than is normal or probably healthy.
