In case you missed the announcement tomorrow there is a SQL user group meeting in Wellington. The speaker is Patrick O'Keeffe from Quest Software in the States. Patrick is a good overseas speaker who has spoken at Tech Ed in Australia in the past.
His title and abstract is:
"Making Sense of your SQL Server Application's Performance - A Practical Guide"
How do you know whether your SQL Server application is performing as efficiently as possible? How can you easily relate performance bottlenecks to application workload?
SQL Server 2000 and 2005 expose large amounts of data, and DBAs manage more servers than ever before. We will discuss some strategies to turn all that data into useful information.
It starts at 6pm and will be at Microsoft, L12 157 Lambton Quay (Vodafone on the Park).
