The Netherlands: I’ve offered a couple of abstracts for the AMIS 25 conference, a masterclass (90 minutes) on “Understanding and Manipulating Parallel Execution Plans”, and a standard session called “Just Don’t Do It” – a collection of real (though camouflaged) cases of reducing the workload by constructing (uncommon or even non-standard) code that tries to avoid the work that doesn’t need to be done.
Glasgow, Scotland: The annual OUG Scotland conference is due to be held at the Radisson Blu hotel in Glasgow. I’ll be giving my “Just Don’t Do It” presentation and chairing a panel on “Optimisation” (which won’t just be about the Cost Based Optimizer).
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.
