Kalen always does a great job of explaining the guts of SQL Server. She has a deep, intuitive grasp of index internals. Even better, she can take that knowledge and share it so everyone can learn something, whether you're a relative newbie or a veteran. This particular workshop is a deep-dive with advanced topics so if you have a good grasp of the basics and want to hone your index skills, sign up now for Friday's online workshop for only $99 and learn all about index internals and best practices. You can even get a DVD as part of the registration (but it costs extra).
