Welcome

The Sacramento SQL Server User Group meets the first Wednesday of every month. Most sessions will have a presentation; however, throughout the year we schedule a few group sessions designed to provide a forum that allows attendees to discuss real-world SQL Server related questions, issues and concerns which are addressed as a group.

We start each meeting with some time to network and get situated. Unless otherwise noted, the schedule for each meeting will be:

6:00 PM - 6:15 PM: Mingle/networking, get food & beverages, presentation setup
6:15 PM - 6:30 PM: Group announcements, agenda, introduce speaker
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM: Presentation
7:30 PM - 8:00 PM: Post-meeting discussions


New Meeting Location:

We have a new meeting location as of October 2013:

Patrick Hays Learning Center
2700 Gateway Oaks Drive
Suite 2600
Sacramento, CA 95833

Next Meeting

Date Wednesday, April 1st, 2015, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Erin Stellato (Remote)

Topic:

"Making the Leap from Profiler to Extended Events"

If you're like me, you've been using SQL Trace and Profiler since you started using SQL Server. They're like old friends, tried and true. You know how they work, you know what you can capture, you know how to find the data you need. But now you've been told that your good friends have been deprecated in SQL Server 2012, and you need to become best friends with Extended Events. What is THAT all about? It's ok. Really. In this session we'll look at Profiler and Extended Events side by side to see how easy it is to transition to Extended Events. We'll step through real world examples using Extended Events to do what you're used to doing with Trace, and even more. You can find the time learn Extended Events today.
