The two first weekends in August I were in Cape Town and Johannesburg respectively presenting at SQL Saturday events. I had a great time, and the audience were terrific. My employer Derivco graciously gave me some “swag” to hand out, and that went down a treat. Thanks Derivco!!
After the events some people have emailed me and asked for the presentations, so I thought I’d upload them to SlideShare, so anyone that are interested can get to them. Seeing that I recently switched to a new blog platform, Octopress, and I a couple of days ago came across a SlideShare plugin for Octopress – I decided to test it out by posting the presentations here on my blog.
The two presentations I did were based about the “weird/wonderful (or not so wonderful)” things we have experienced at Derivco in our live production environments:
- SQL Real World Error Handling – Gotcha’s when doing error-handling in SQL Server
- Message Queues in SQL Server – Enhance performance by using queues in SQL Server
