I’ve been heads-down updating Microsoft’s Hands-on Labs, originally written for SQL Server 2016 CTP3, into something that showcases not only the SP1 release of SQL Server 2016, but also some of the new SQL Server 2017 features. One of the most exciting new features is Adaptive Query Processing, not to be confused with another awesome new feature called Automatic Query Tuning!
So I will not be able to continue my blog series on Clustered Indexes this week. (Don’t worry, it’s definitely still near the top of my blogging queue!) Instead, I’ll mention that these hands-on labs will be made available in a series of FREE workshops I’ll be giving around the country over the next couple of months. It looks like I’ll be presenting the workshop in three cities in Texas and three in the Midwest And then there will be more next year!
Great news on the conference front. After some extensive traveling from August through October, I get to go to the PASS Summit in the Emerald City. I’ll be a presenter at this 2017 Summit, held November 1 – 3, in Seattle, Washington.
If you would really like to attend the Summit, too, DB Best Technologies has something for you!
