Next weekend is SQL Saturday #373 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. There is something about having a training event on a lovely tropical island that appeals to me. This will be my second time speaking at their event. These guys run a great event.
I will be presenting Recovery and Backup for Beginners. That’s one of my favorite topics. So many presenters try to do 400-level topics, and I like to do the intro stuff as well. Sometimes people forget that we have a lot of people who are just getting their feet wet with SQL Server.
I’m also presenting Transaction Log Internals: Virtual Log Files. This will be my first time presenting it after learning about the new algorithm in SQL 2014 for VLF creation. I need to figure out if I want to demo that in both SQL 2012 and SQL 2014, or if I want to just mention that this has changed in SQL 2014.
