Ich werde sprechen an SQL Saturday Munich 2018

Guten Morgen zusammen!

Die zeit zur minem nächsten session ist gekommen!

It is a mixed feeling of excitement and being nervous at the same time!

This weekend I will be, along with my friend and also Data Platform MVP Fabiano Amorin, delivering a session at SQL Saturday 772 in Munich/Germany.

Together with him, we will deliver the following session: Stop Everything! T-SQL tips to make a developer life easier!

We promise it will one hour of really cool demos and also some surprises for you! I guess you will like what you are going to see.

Off course I want you guys in our session, but as Fabiano is coming from Brazil for the event, he is also going to deliver a second session called: 13 reasons why my query is slow, which I will be certainly checking it out, and you should do the same.

Other than that, you have at least other 25 sessions that you can choose to watch, there is something to please everyone. Ah! I should say that you have to register yourself ASAP, as open seats are running out very fast.

I will be the whole day in the konferenz, and I’d love to talk with you! Make sure to stop by.

Bis später!

Visualizing the content of encrypted stored procedures

Probably you were a bit curious about it and decided to click here, right? This is a very recurrent question on Microsoft forums, where people who maybe by mistake encrypted all of the stored procedures, or maybe you support a 3rd party application and there is an particular stored procedure killing the performance of your server and you just wanna know what the same is doing?

Independent of what you want to do, let me show you here how can you manage to see the content of an encrypted procedure. Read the rest of this entry

SQL Saturday 687 Slovenia – Here I go!

Hi everyone!

The very last SQL Saturday in Europe of this year is taking place in Ljubljana – Slovenia and I can glady say that I will be there, and even better, I am going to be a speaker.

I would say that most of my readers already know what is SQL Saturday, but if you don’t, just go directly to SQL Saturday Home Page, where you can find a very easy explanation to it.

Personaly, I think that SQL Saturday’s are a great opportunity to learn something new in your carrer. For example. nowadays the majority of the sessions that I go are about Database Lifecycle management. However, SQL Saturday’s are also good to meet new people, hear from the experts, etc.. So please, go to the event page and register it, as there will be plenty of great sessions!

Novos vídeos no canal do Youtube

Olá pessoal,

A algum tempo atrás estava gravando um curso sobre criação de baselines com SQL Server, Integration Services e Reporting Services. Acontece que com a minha mudança de rotina, de trabalho e de uma série de outros fatores a gravação do curso acabou ficando em segundo plano.

Depois de pensar mais sobre isso, decidi que não iria mais continuar a gravação dos vídeos e então resolvi liberar em meu canal do youtube os primeiros que eu tinha gravado. São cerca de 4 a 5 vídeos curtos, mas que passam alguma dicas bem legais. Read the rest of this entry

Say goodbye to Service Packs!!

Did you hear the news?

Microsoft is changing its Service Model for SQL Server and the major difference is that Service Packs will be no longer released starting on SQL Server 2017. However, this doesn’t mean that you no longer will have new features and product enhancements, rather than they will release new features and so on in Cumulative Updates.

Why are they doing this for SQL Server 2017? Well, in my personal opinion I believe that with major product versions being released almost every year or two years, they want to be faster in terms of releasing new fixes, launching new features and so on. Read the rest of this entry
