Speaking at SQLSaturday Göteborg #433


Another great news comes today. I was selected as a speaker in Gothenburg event (to be frankly, I prefer the native name of the city Göteborg). My session is about a SQL Server transaction log internals and how to troubleshoot issues you might face when you’re not paying enough attention to transaction log.

It seems it would be a very good time for me – a week in Europe from SQLSat Oslo to SQLSat Göteborg. I hope it will be cool!

Here is the full schedule of the conference http://www.sqlsaturday.com/433/sessions/schedule.aspx

If you want to get a free training, deep your knowledge or ask a difficult question, you’re welcome. And don’t forget to invite your colleagues/co-workers/friends/spouse/children 🙂 who are interesting in SQL Server to join us in first-ever SQLSaturday in Sweden!
