I was surprised at how many SQL lovers out there showed up for our Columbus OH PASS chapter meeting on Valentines Day. I made sure to remind everyone to buy flowers on their way home!
I did an overview of AlwaysOn which has to be my favorite new part of SQL Server. It really addresses a number of items that I have personally struggled with as a DBA. I am including my slides from the presentation for the attendees.
If you live in the Columbus, OH area, I try to make as many chapter meetings as possible. Attending and supporting your local PASS chapter is a great way to get to know other technical resources in your area. You can also get ideas from one another on how to improve your environment. Being born and raised in the central Ohio area, I really enjoy getting to meet people from other businesses that call Columbus their home.
