This week I’m on vacation with my family in sunny Orlando. As luck would have it, the SQLSaturday powers-that-be scheduled SQLSaturday #85 here in Orlando this weekend. I submitted a few sessions and had one selected! If you want to learn about statistics, I would love to see you at my session, “You’re My Density: Making Sense of Statistics.” It’s in the first time slot at 8:30 AM, and I’m really looking forward to speaking. I gave this presentation last week at SQLSaturday #84 in Kalamazoo and had great feedback. I love SQL Server statistics and have really found my groove with this session. If you’re new to SQL Server, or haven’t worked with statistics very much, this is a good session that explains the basics of statistics: how to view them, how to make sense of the stats blob, how they’re updated and so on.
If you don’t attend, feel free to stop by before or after to say hi if we haven’t met! I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of new people; this is my first SQLSaturday south of the Mason-Dixon line. And if you can’t make this event, I’m presenting this same topic in Portland, Oregon on October 8 at SQLSaturday #92 (my first SQLSaturday west of the Continental Divide). See you soon!
