I want to promote a couple free talks coming up here in Kitchener Ontario.
Drawing Conclusions, December 12, 2016
At D2L, we created a new free monthly meetup called D2L Night School that helps us give back to the local tech community. This is how we describe it on the site:
Since 1999, D2L has been growing in Kitchener while transforming the way the world learns. We don’t know it all, but along the way we’ve learned some things about technology and management that we want to share with the wider community. We’re excited to launch D2L Night School to share what we’ve learned, network with other innovators and collectively build a stronger tech community in KW.
On December 12, I’ll be giving my Drawing Conclusions talk, a fun and sometimes irreverent look at the SQL Server and Data world through illustrations.
Register here. Then come drink beer, socialize and talk tech. It should be fun.
High Concurrency in SQL Server, January 25, 2017
Earlier this year, the local .Net User Group CTTNUG asked members what topics they’d like to learn more about. It turns out that SQL Server was high on that list and so Ken Cenerelli reached out to me. And so I’ll be talking about SQL Server concurrency, a topic I care a lot about.
Concurrency is a critical part to scalability. Come by and learn how to tackle common enemies of concurrency. Get this right and you’ll have one less problem to worry about. And one less problem lets you get back to more important things.
Register at the meetup site. I’ll see you there in January.
