SQL Server Presentations

Here are the various SQL presentations that I’ve done over the years. You can check the speaking schedule to see when I might do these in the future, but please feel free to send a note if you’d like to see one of these or if you have questions.

Please feel free to suggest something as well. I’ve worked in a lot of areas of SQL Server, but haven’t built presentations on all of the areas in which I have experience.
