May OPASS Meeting Tonight

Join us tonight for our May OPASS meeting at the SQL Share Offices 225 S. Westmonte Drive, Suite 2010, Altamonte Springs FL.  Here are the details, including the Live Meeting link for the featured presentation:

Sponsor: Confio Software

Live Meeting:

Topic: Tuna Helper for SQL Server DBA's

Many DBAs and developers are faced with tuning poorly performing SQL statements. There is no way to learn everything you need to know about SQL tuning in an hour, but you can learn a process to employ when badly written SQLs are ruining database performance. However, many tuning projects fail because the process being used is inefficient. This presentation will walk through a process Confio Software uses with great success and will include topics such as: SQL diagramming, wait type data, column selectivity, and several more that will help you succeed on future tuning projects.

Speaker: Dean Richards

Dean Richards has over 20 years of performance tuning, implementation and strategic database architecting experience. Prior to Confio, Dean was a technical director for Oracle Corporation managing technical aspects of key accounts including short and long-term technical planning and strategic alliances. Specifically, Dean has focused his entire career on performance tuning of Oracle and SQL Server environments.

RSVP to if you plan to attend in person so we have an idea about how much food and drink to provide.

  1. Thanks to OPASS for having us in to speak. I always get comments about the SQL Diagramming section of my presentation and how well that works for tuning SQL. My 24 Hours of PASS presentation will be focused on that topic so join us there if you can as well. Also, remember to get the new Free version of Ignite for monitoring.


So what do you think I am?
