Just got my speaker feedback from SqlBits 9 for both my Always On session and my Dot.net session. Thanks to everyone who attended and filled out the feedback. It looks like my Always On Session was one of the top sessions at the event, and the Dot.net one was not far behind.
While the dot.net did not score quite as highly, the feedback was super positive and it looks like there is a real appetite for people who want sessions that focus more on dot.net than pure SQL Server.
Here are some of the feedback comments from the Always On Deep Dive
- Amazing demo’s. Bob is a complete guru. I learned a lot and was amazing at
what he was able to cover in one hour. The only downside was that because
there was so much, the pace was very fast.
- This was a superb session. It answered every question I had about always-on.
Bob knows his stuff inside out and managed to explain and build a working lab
demo that clearly illustrated all of the important technologies, features and
benefits, gotchas and other things to look out for. It was a lot to get through in a
1 hour session but it was superbly done
- Awesome demo. Bob actually had two “data centre’s”(Laptops) and performed
a real time planned and unplanned failover. So much could have gone wrong in
that demo but it all went perfect. Excellent real world demonstration of Denali
- Really good session. Can’t wait to get my hands on Denali! Begone mirroring 🙂
Here are some of the feedback comments:
- Excellent session, lots of detail and info on what to look out for in .Net apps to
gain performance from SQL. Can definitely take this lesson and ensure our
workplace is applying these rules.
- As a developer this was the best session from both days for me.
- This session was pure gold for me. The practical suggestions for checking
query plan re-use etc were spot on. I’ve already had a meeting with my
colleagues to pass on these pearls of wisdom. It’s been a timely reminder for us
to keep performance very much in mind, as we are just about to start a major
new SQL Server project. Very useful.
- Bob is a real SME… I don’t like .Net, but Bob’s style of presenting even inspired
a sense of confidence in me!
