[PASS] I'm presenting March 27, 2013!

Howdy, all!  I am pleased to be presenting on Event Notifications this week.  It's a soup-to-nuts on tracking code changes and more, across your environment.  I honestly think most people reading this would find it handy.  We've found it essential in our environment.

Topic: Master of All I Survey - Tracking Code Changes Across Dozens of Servers Seamlessly and Automatically sponsored by Quest Software

Presenter: Michael Bourgon


Everyone's been bitten by it - rogue changes made on servers, be it SPs, index rebuilds, or even configuration changes. What if you knew? What if you could look historically across servers and track down what changes were made when, by who, and from where? It exists, it's already built into MSSQL, it's easy to implement and it's been there waiting for you for 7 years. Come learn what Event Notification is and why you'll want it in your environment.
Michael Bourgon is the Senior Production DBA for Emdeon Pharmacy Services.  He started work with Sybase on RS/6000 over 15 years ago, and has been meddling with some form of the SQL Server codebase ever since.  He's always looking for a better way to be a Lazy DBA - spending far too many hours automating processes in order to accomplish that.  In his spare time he listens to weird music, reads Science Fiction, and tries to ensure his daughter grows up a nerd, too. 

 Door prize: There will be a raffle for a $50 Amazon gift certificate.  You do not need to register for the meeting, but if you want to enter the raffle, you must register at no later than 5:00 PM EDT on March 26th.
