devLINK Technical Conference is Biggest Ever

I am presenting a 3-hour session on the SQL Server 2008 Data Collector.

The devLink Technical Conference, held August 13-15, 2009 in Nashville, TN was the largest devLINK event every held, with over 675 attendees. This once a year event, held at Lipscomb University in Nashville, offered over 96 sessions in 9 different tracks, including 1 database-specific track.

The event, which only cost $100 ($75 for early sign-up) drew attendees not only from Tennessee, but from over 30 states and most of the Canadian provinces. The event not only included three days of training, but all lunches, snacks, and a .NET Rocks event with Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell.

The event was put on by John Kellar and Leanna Baker, plus with the help of many volunteers.

Database track speakers included Joe Webb, Louis Davidson, Paul Nielsen, Kevin Kline, Jessica Moss, and Wally McClure. I also spoke at the event, making three presentations on:

  • The SQL Server 2008 Data Collector
  • Getting the Most Out of the SQL Server 2005/2008 Profiler
  • Database Maintenance Plan Optimization
