So we have a bit of a reputation for our Friday night party at SQL Saturday Exeter and we want you to join us on March 11th for another great evening.
People from the Training Day will be there talking about their new skills and then people start arriving to register early for the Saturday too. We provide refreshments and entertainment and everyone just has a great evening – delegates, a lot of the speakers and of course the sponsors who make the event possible – spending the night getting to know each other and having a great time.
This year we are running a SQL Server challenge during the party and there is an epic prize for the winner. Sandisk have really made a massive effort on our behalf and will be bringing a load of hardware and we will have a SQL Server installed with everything at default settings and we have a benchmark script that will be used to measure your SQL Server skills. Take as long as you want to think about what you would change and then you get a maximum of 5 minutes to make any changes you want. Once you are done we run the script and your time goes onto our leader board. Who ever is at the top when the competition closes wins the prize.
What’s the prize you ask?
The winner gets a Sandisk Extreme Pro SSD , and not just any one, it’s the 960GB one.
So, start your research now, what default settings would you change on a SQL Server before you put it into production to improve performance?
Don’t worry if you don’t want to have a crack at the competition, just come along to the party and have a friendly start to your SQL Saturday Exeter!
See you there!
