Another Very Successful Day with SQL Server Guru Kevin Kline

It was incredible to have Kevin Kline come visit our User Group in Ireland again in 2011. It was almost 4 years since Kevin completed a road show around Ireland in May, 2007, visiting Galway, Cork, Dublin, & Belfast. Unfortunately, this time he had time to visit the SQL Server Ireland User Group in Dublin only.

Hopefully, we will have an excuse to bring him over again. In particular, a visit to Cork now that Quest Software have opened new offices there. The Cork MTUG User Group, run by Joe Gill, was most disappointed that he could make it this time.

Performance optimization on SQL Server is difficult. A vast array of information exists on how to address performance problems in general. However, there is not much information on the specifics and even less information on how to apply that specific knowledge to your own environment.

In this full day event, we were fortunate to have Quest Software’s Kevin Kline explore some of the biggest challenges SQL Server professionals face in their daily lives. Kevin offered some practical knowledge and recommendations for how to improve SQL Server performance in your environment. The topics included:

· Performance troubleshooting

· Using DMVs

· SQL Injection Attacks

· Managing performance in physical and virtual environments

Thanks to Carmel Gunn, of Prodata SQL Centre of Excellence, for the photographs from the event which are found on Facebook

Presentation Notes can be found at SSIUG Skydrive and also at http://bit.ly/kekline .

Thank you, Kevin, for another excellent event.
