Today, while I write this blog, I am preparing to travel to Hyderabad for another assignment with Microsoft India Development Center.
This SQL Server training assignment in India was organized by Peopleware India –
My last training blog post was here;
This advanced SQL training was indeed a very challenging assignment for me. Kudos to audience; they made me stay awake every night, almost :). We had a classroom full of senior database administrators with 10 years of experience on average. And I was impressed with the quality of questions and scenrios that came across while teaching this class. I must say, I learnt a few things as well from the audience who are managing clusters of SQL Server to the tune of 1400 in numbers –phew !!! As usual, I met new minds, new personalities, got to know their SQL stories, their issues, remedies, tips, tricks, techniques and bunch of little things! Every assignment makes me a better SQL guy and a better person too 🙂
This was a 5 day workshop focusing more on advanced troubleshooting in SQL Server. This was one workshop where I spent quality time demo-ing Extended Events and a number of troubleshooting techniques with it. This was combined with all standard stuff like DMVs, Perf counters, wait stats, etc, and a couple of free tools – PAL & RML being one of my favorites.
The audience was so focused, and I was glad to make new friends !
And yes, there was an interesting SSIS migration scenario that we solved – will talk about it sometime later; I need to rush to the airport now 🙂
I loved interacting with the folks; they made an excellent class.
Here are is the Pic from the class:

My next batch in November was also about troubleshooting and performance tuning – will write about it shortly.
