Speaking at SQL Server Konferenz 2020

I am very happy to announce that I will be speaking at SQL Server Konferenz 2020 that is happening from March 3-5, 2020 in Darmstadt, Germany. I will be presenting two sessions at this event. The first session (Dr. DMV’s Troubleshooting Toolkit), will be a PreCon workshop on March 3, 2020. Here is the abstract for the session:

Dr. DMV’s Troubleshooting Toolkit

Dynamic Management Views and functions allow you to easily see exactly what is happening inside your SQL Server instances and databases with a high level of detail. You can discover your top wait types, most CPU intensive stored procedures, find missing indexes, and identify unused indexes, to name just a few examples. This session presents, demonstrates and explains a complete set of diagnostic DMV queries that you can easily use to detect and diagnose configuration and performance issues in your SQL Server instances and databases.

This session goes into exhaustive detail on how to interpret the results of each of the diagnostic queries, including relevant background information on how to properly configure your hardware, storage subsystem, operating system, SQL Server instance and databases in order to avoid performance and scalability issues.

Tame the Data Monster!

The second session (High Availability/Disaster Recovery 101), will be a 60 minute slot on March 4, 2020. Here is the abstract for the session:

High Availability/Disaster Recovery 101

How do you design a SQL Server 2019 infrastructure in order to meet specific Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) service levels? There are many aspects to consider, from technology choices and licensing, to policies and procedures.

This session outlines and compares the various HA/DR technologies available in SQL Server 2019, showing how you can combine them to design and build a solution to help meet your HA/DR goals. It also covers how to come up with the necessary policies to make the technology actually work in your situation.


I think a great conference starts with great speakers presenting current and useful content. All of these speakers are industry-experts that have worked in SQL Server for years and all of them are still focused on consulting and working in the trenches. And, they’re good presenters! Not only will you hear useful content but you’ll do so in a way that is applicable and entertaining.

If you want practical information delivered by speakers that not-only know the technologies but are competent and consistently, highly-rated presenters – this is the conference for you.

The Twitter hashtags for the event are #sqlkonferenz and #sqlpass_de.

Final Words

I have never been to Germany before, so I am really looking forward to this conference! I have always been interested in German history and culture, and I have also brewed (and drank) many German-style beers.

This should be a lot of fun, and I hope to see you there! Here is where you can register for this event.
