Vancouver Tech Fest 2012 is Coming – April 28, 2012

It will be a great place to learn different programming technologies. I will be presenting Locking and Concurrency Considerations in DB Design.
Concurrency is one of the most important things to be seriously considered while designing a complex database system. Fully understanding different level of concurrency control is the key to make your design success. Most of SQL Server internal concurrency controls are implemented through locks. We can utilized the same mechanism to customize the concurrency control for your processes. I am going to cover all of these during the session. At the end, we will talk about concurrency control with combination of different components of SQL Server.

SQL Saturday 108 – Redmond Feb 25, 2012

I will be presenting Parallel Task Scheduling with T-SQL. You might already attend my presentation on this before however this session will be the revised one with new features included. It’s not so difficult to write a stored procedure to execute number of tasks (SQL statements) sequentially and/or conditionally. However, things will become complex when you decide to run the code blocks within the procedure from different sessions concurrently with desired ordering and definable degrees of parallelism. In this session, we will discuss different ways to implement thread schedulers, semaphores, synchronizations, and process ordering as well as process monitoring and manipulation by using pure T-SQL.
