Kalen Delaney teaches the most advanced SQL Server courses in the world. Kalen has been working with SQL Server since 1987 and has since written many award-winning books. Her course “SQL Server Internals and Tuning” is designed for advanced SQL Server professionals who want to know how SQL Server really works, in order to take maximum advantage of its potential.
