10 Reasons to Attend #SQLSat Costa Rica

SQL Saturday Costa Rica is less than one week away.  There is still time to register and if you haven’t yet here are some reasons to get you motivated.

1. Andy Leonard, twitter, Using BIML as an SSIS Design Patterns Engine If you work with SSIS and have always thought, “There has to be an easier way to quickly replicate these redundant tasks in SSIS” then this is the session for you.  Andy literally wrote the book in SSIS Design Patterns, I won’t tell you how it ends, but the hero wins after an awesome fight sequence and there is definitely room for a sequel.

2. Jose Chinchilla, twitter, Aprende todo sobre Business Intelligence con SQL Server 2012, SharePoint y Excel 2013 If you are a business intelligence developer then this session is a MUST.  The BI toolset is no longer limited to SQL, but is extended to SharePoint as well as Excel.  Need more information on BI and the tools available then show up.

3. Kenneth Urena, twitter, Estrategias de Indexación para alto desempeño Has your indexing strategy gone stale?  Then sit in to learn about indexing strategies for high performance.

4. Carlos Chacón, twitter, Judge, Jury, and Executioner—A First Look at Execution Plans Are you query plan illiterate?  Did you miss this session at SQL Saturday Puerto Rico?  Time to catch up!!  This session is the “Hooked on Phonics” for execution plan reading.

5. Rodney Landrum, twitter, Data Analytics and the DBA – Using PowerView to Uncover Interesting Facts About Your SQL Servers Looking for user friendly tools to uncover information about your data.  How about PowerPivot and PowerView?  This session will show you how to use these new tools to retrieve and display this information.

6. Eduardo Castro, twitter, Optimizar el desempeño de SQL Cloud Database Have you thought of moving SQL to Azure VM’s and are looking for some best practices?  Join Eduardo on this as well as comparing SQL as a service or infrastructure.

7. Jose L. Rivera, twitter, Table Partitioning A to Z What are some table partitioning strategies as well as improvements in SQL 2014?  I couldn’t tell you.  That’s why Jose will be in Costa Rica.

8. Tim Radney, twitter, Know Backups and Know Recovery Do you really need a back up and recovery strategy?  Not as long as you have a junior DBA to blame it on.  THAT WAS A JOKE!!  Tim discusses backup strategies and how these should work together with your recovery strategy.

9. Jose Gregorio Lopez, twitter, In Memory OLTP – Introduction  So you went to Jose’s presentation at SQL Saturday Puerto Rico a few weeks back and are following him to Costa Rica?  A little creepy and bordering on stalking.  Get an introduction to SQL’s new in memory technology

10. I attended this event last year and despite Eduardo and others getting to know me I was invited back.  That REALLY speaks volumes about patience and tolerance, you can refer to my post about my visit to support this here.  The above listed are only a few of the informative and exciting sessions that will be presented.  I am very excited and honored to be participating at SQL Saturday Costa Rica again this year and hope to see you there.
