This was one of the big problems I had in SQLSaturday!
The choice of sessions to watch 🙂
With over 50 sessions to choose from can ensure that the choice was not easy.
Attended many internationally known names as national names, and many of the speakers present I consider them as friends 🙂
With a very full schedule http://www.sqlsaturday.com/267/schedule.aspx i started by going to one of the easiest choices .. the keynote 🙂
The keynote was delivered by the leader of our community (Niko Neugebauer) and our main sponsor Microsoft through our friend Paulo Mena which gave us some novelty in the new version of SQL Server 2014.
For the next session began choices, and with 7 simultaneous sessions began difficulties.
My choice was something new that Mirosoft is developing and how I like innovations behold chose the session “Project Siena – The gist” with the speaker Paulo Matos.
The project siena is something that is a few months and although there is still a final version can already perform some proofs of concept with this tool.
Paulo Matos has more information on this topic on your blog and you can see the posts here: http://www.paulomatos.com/2014/03/project-siena-beta-2-finally.html
And behold, the time comes when I have no choice about the session to attend!
It’s time to introduce my session, the session I presented was “Good fellows – System Center and SQL Server”
The session went smoothly, and I’ve put a post about it here.
The next choice was the session of Brent Ozar, with the presentation “Real-Life SQL 2012 and 2014 Availability Group Deployments”
As expected it was a great session with an excellent speaker.
After lunch the organization offered participants thank the sponsors that it was time to choose the next session.
The time to learn more about “Clustered columnstore” with the session “Deep Dive Clustered columnstore” arrived delivered by Niko Neugebauer.
I already had some knowledge on the subject but in this session I learned in greater detail some very important details.
Niko has several posts in his blog on the subject that I recommend to follow because they are beautifully detailed and presented.
The presentation session was excellent. Thanks Niko.
After a short break it was the turn of our Gold sponsors have their sessions, and this time esolhi see a bit of each sponsor and the feedback I got from anyone was watching in each of the sessions was very positive
The following section was again with Brent and this time was “How to Think Like the Engine” session
How could it happen the Brent again presented the topic in a spectacular way and it took me to get some more notice of the reasons for some of the behaviors of the SQL engine.
Brent has some additional information on this topic on your blog and even has a video to explain the topic http://www.brentozar.com/archive/2014/04/updated-think-like-sql-server-videos/
The last session I chose was the session of Mark Broadbent “Olde Cluster Curiosity Shoppe – A Miscellany of top tips from the field”

Mark is a great friend and the presentation was very entertaining and there was a lot of interaction with the audience.
In one example of the problems that Mark presented i refer that the resolution to the problem of registration of the name of the SQL cluster could done differently and that I had already made this operation, but come now confirm that Mark was right; to fix my situation in a different way was really different; the problem was that Mark presented the account be deleted when I was running and my situation was during the setup of the cluster there are problems with the record being created for it already exists.
Mark you were right 🙂
It was time to end the raffle prizes offered by the sponsors and the organization.
Offers from our sponsors were raffled, and the organization’s raffled 2 Surface devices.
Thank you all 🙂
