Last night I gave my Resource Governor spiel at the New England SQL Server User Group meeting in Waltham, MA. About 60 people were in attendance. Unlike the last few times I've presented this technology to an audience (because friends and co-workers don't count), there seemed to be much more genuine interest… I think this has largely to do with the fact that Service Pack 1 is now available, and the light at the end of the tunnel is a lot more visible to some fellow DBAs. There were lots of good questions; for most I had the answers, for a few I did not. I always fear that I will do horribly in front of a crowd, and it usually turns out better than I had feared. This was one of those occasions. 🙂
For those looking for the slides from the presentation, they are below, in PDF format. If you want the PowerPoint slides to re-use for your own presentations, they are a moving target – so please get in touch with me directly (aaron [dot] bertrand @ gmail).
After the talk, I was asked to give it again at the CT DOT NET Developers Group in Farmington, CT. It's a bit of a hike for me but I will probably opt in.
