Speaking at SQL Saturday #101: Kansas City

SQL Saturday 101 I'm very happy to have been chosen to speak at SQL Saturday #101 in Kansas City on October 29th. Those responsible for planning have put together an excellent schedule with a great group of speakers that I'm proud to be among!

I'll be presenting 2 sessions that day:

Backups and Recovery In Depth takes a good look at how backup and restore operations work in SQL Server, how your choice of recovery model affects what they do, and how this knowledge can be utilized to develop an effective restore strategy for your database. This session got lots of positive feedback at SQL Saturday #67 in Chicago earlier this year, so I'm hoping it's a hit this time as well.

The Skinny on Data Compression is a new presentation of mine that covers the different types of data compression available in SQL Server and the details of how they work. We'll also discuss the pros and cons of compressing your data and how to determine which type of compression is the most appropriate for a given object.

Registration is still open as of when this post went live, so if you'd like to attend please do so here. If you're on Twitter, I highly recommend following the hashtag #sqlsat101 for the latest information. There will also be lots of chatter there the weekend of the event.

Hope to see you there!
