SQL Server Performance, Best Practices, & Productivity
I’m presenting soon to two Colorado user groups.
Topic: Columnstore Indexes in SQL Server 2012 & 2014: Flipping the DW /faster bit

I’m giving away one copy at each preso of SQL matriarch Kalen Delaney et al’s latest-&-greatest hot-off-the-presses opus: Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Internals Kalen Delaney (blog|twitter), Bob Beauchemin (blog|twitter), Connor Cunningham, Jonathan Kehayias (blog|twitter), Paul Randal (blog|twitter), & Ben Nevarez (blog|twitter)
I was originally asked to speak last summer. Linking my nascent passion for skiing with the timing resulted in a low latency response of something like, ‘Hey, let’s do this in six months, eh?’. I followed up with Mike at the 2013 PASS Summit & along with Erik we carved the dates in stone. I’m Denver-bound as I type this & am extremely eager to combine my passion for skiing along with my eagerness to evangelize one of the many new! &/or improved! features that SQL Server has to offer. I’ll provide an update on both my experience on the slopes & with the groups.
In the meantime, as I write this, I’m looking out over the slopes of Vail being greeted by the winter’s dawn.
It’s going to be a great day—& a great week! I hope you can join us!
Wow, really looking forward to your presentation. I thought I would do some reading prior to this. Any recommendations?
@Bennett: I have exactly what you seek:
SQL Server Columnstore Index FAQ
It's a lucid, accessible, brilliant read. I think you'll like it.
This is perfect. Since @dsfnet isn't with me, you can be my wingman--it's your job to foil anyone who tries to play Stump-the-Chump. Thanks! ;-)
That was an enlightening presentation. Can you point us to the slide deck?
I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm going to post it soon after an internal summit at which I'm presenting. In the meantime, send me your email address & I'll reply directly.
