Next week I am returning to Orlando not only to visit the mouse at his house, but also to speak at SQL Saturday Orlando! Last year was my first time there and I had a great time. This also happened after the event was pushed back to November 2016 because of Hurricane Matthew.
This year I will talking about deadlocking and blocking – something that is an issue for so many DBAs. Whether this issue is indexes or bad code…or you have been trying in use indexes to cover up bad code, blocks and deadlocks can happen in even the best environments under the right circumstances. If you are going to be at SQL Saturday Orlando come to my session where we will talk about detecting and preventing these arch enemies of the DBA!
