|28th – 29th Sept 2016||Zurich, Switzerland: . I will be speaking at Trivadis’ annual event, this year called “Database Development and Performance Days” and consisting of two streams. My topics will be: “Just Don’t Do It” – examples of optimising your code by avoiding the work you didn’t need to do, and “Indexing” – a discussion of the benefits we hope to get from indexes (B-tree and Bitmap), why we don’t always get then, and what it costs to try.|
|17th – 21st Oct 2016||Slovenia and Croatia: . I’ve been asked to speak at the Slovenian and Croatian user group events which occur back to back over the week of 17th October. I’ll be presenting “Just Don’t Do It” and a short version of “Interpreting Parallel Execution Plans” for both events.|
|5th – 7th Dec 2016||Birmingham, UK: I’ll be giving three presentation at UKOUG Tech 16.
I’m also on the standby list if there’s a cancellation that needs a substitute, but it’s for a two-hour session so there’s less chance of it being needed than a standard session: Interpreting Parallel Execution Plans – a masterclass that starts where typical presentations on reading serial execution plans end.
Please email me questions for the panel session at Tech16@jlcomp.demon.co.uk
