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!

Both the SQLSat Austin and Albuquerque events were great – now on to Phoenix. I will be giving two sessions there – Deadlock, Block & Two Smoking Barrels: Breaking Down Blocking and Deadlocks and Making the Leap from Developer to DBA.
The first of the two is a new session for me. When it comes to blocking and deadlocks, I like to be able to identify the cause (and sometimes the culprit) and have the information needed to resolve the issue. Some methods are easier, while with others, you also have to think about the footprint of the troubleshooting itself.
With Making the Leap from Developer to DBA, this session has evolved with time and my own experiences. Anyone who is looking to transition to being a DBA full time should attend to get a real-life perspective on migrating into this role and some of the things you can look forward to.
On top of all this, I have also been invited to be part of the WIT Panel. Come join my self and some other amazing women during lunch as we share and discuss confidence and our experiences in IT.
I’m looking forward to another great SQL Saturday as well as meeting everyone in Phoenix. See y’all there! 🙂
