Today, I had a great pleasure to speak at the SQLDay 2019 conference in Wroclaw, Poland. It’s the biggest conference in Europe that is focused on Microsoft’s Data Platform.
This year all attendees had the opportunity to meet exceptional speakers and attend full-day workshops delivered by real SQL Server gurus like Rob Farley (b|t) and Grant Fritchey (b|t) (Unfortunately Aaron Bertrand (b|t) didn’t arrive on time :)).
I had an amazing occasion to present my session titled Working with the Legacy database – how to tame the beast (in polish: “Praca z bazą daną – czyli jak okiełznać starego potwora”).
That is unbelievable! Exactly two years ago I published my first post on this blog (OK, to be 100% correct, that was the second one but we all can agree that the “Hello World” post doesn’t count). At that time, I had no idea how it would develop, but I knew one thing. I wanted to share my knowledge with others. I wanted to learn new things and then pass it to others curious and hungry for knowledge Database Specialist! Continue reading “The second birthday of my blog!”
Today, I accidentally discovered that I’m in the TOP 30 SQL Server Bloggers of 2018 by SQLShack. This is a big surprise and I’m very happy that I received such amazing recognition. It’s a great feeling to be on such a list with all these well-known #SQLFamily members.
I couldn’t imagine more perfect timing. Speaking quite frankly, I have a hard time to get back to blogging after my vacation break and this recognition is a huge motivation for me to resume work on my posts.
I will try to publish my blog posts regularly in September, however, it may be difficult because I’m also preparing to pass the AWS Certificate exam by the end of this year. Keep fingers crossed!

About my session
Last year, I was presenting tSQLt framework for database unit testing. This time, I will talk about Query Execution Plans. I will explain how they are created, how to get them, and what useful information they provide. In addition, I will discuss few most important operators and its properties. This knowledge is extremely useful when analyzing query performance problems. Of course, everything will be supported by interesting demos. I encourage you to come and see my session.
