A place for my thoughts and experiences the Microsoft Data Platform

Speaking at SQL Saturday #613 in Redmond, WA

On April 15, 2017 I’ll be speaking at SQL Saturday in Redmond, WA. I’ve settled down after the recent changes, so it’s time to start to be an active part of the Microsoft Data Platform (former SQL Server) community again.

I’ll be talking about monitoring SQL Server Integration Services and the amazing support for JSON in SQL Server 2016:

SSIS Monitoring Deep Dive

In this session we’ll see everything interesting is hidden in the SSISDB database, where you can gain a lot of insight on the outcome, the performance and the status of your SSIS Packages. I’ll share everything I’ve learned building the SSIS Dashboard we’re actually using in production and that you can test here We’ll see the internals of SSISDB database, how we can add custom logging information and how we can use all these data in order to know exactly what happened on a specific point in time.

JSON & SQL Server: using it effectively

JSON is a de-facto standard for machine-to-machine communication but also to store “liquid” data. Once a killer feature of NoSQL database, with SQL Server 2016 is now available also in a (post) relational environment.
But how it fits in the relational database space? How the usage of JSON can simplify DBAs and DEVs everyday work? What about performances? And what about flexibility?
In this session we’ll see how powerful JSON can be, when used correctly and not abused, providing solution to common problems
(like in the well known “dynamic schema” case), simplifying development (for example to pass to Stored Procedure complex objects or variable numbers of parameters) with also very good performances, even if they maybe hidden in not-so-obvious places.

The event is going to be an amazing one, as you can see from the agenda:

SQLSaturday #613 - Redmond 2017

So, if you live near there, don’t miss it.

See there in a bit more than a month!
