Slides and Sample code: SQL Server Admin Best Practices with DMV's from the Houston TechFest 2011

Here's my official blog page for my presentation on SQL Server Admin Best Practices with DMV's from the Houston TechFest 2011 on October 15.  Thanks for attending my session in the of a great event put on by Michael and the entire Houston TechFest team.  The University of Houston was a great host for the event!

Thanks also to all the sponsors who attendees.  In the speaker room I heard some discussion of HTF's decision to have back-to-back Keynotes in the morning, not starting the actual sessions until 11AM and then breaking for lunch at noon.  I have to agree with what I heard - the vendors paid the money to put this free event on, why not give them the freshest audience?  As a veteran of three SQL Saturdays in Baton Rouge, I have to admit it was an uncommon but inventive scheduling decision.  If it increases vendor satisfaction and retention for next year's event, nobody should mind, especially the attendees.
