    Really looking forward to the first session of the event: Use Git for database code: From cheat sheets to Pull Requests.  

    Recently been learning how to use GIT and I have learned so much from Kendra in the past!

    The first presentation Use Git for database code: From cheat sheets to Pull Requests.  
    was informative on deploying scripts and changes across database and environments across from dev ops. Branching and merging was very informative. 

    You Dont know how long I have wanted to use Redgate Tools again! My management wont sign off the budget to buy them for our department. Please PLEASE consider me for your competition. Redgate Sql Complete is a god send in SSMS. Keep up the good work with instilling community based learning and making data great for everybody.
    Thanks Mark  :O

    I really enjoyed the 1st session -  Use Git for database code: From cheat sheets to Pull Requests. We have started implementing this in my team and its good to see we are on the right track as we doing most of what was said. It was very informative.

    For day one, i am waiting for Grant to open my eyes on Extended Events, rest of the speakers are pure Bonus :-)
    Stay safe everybody
  • So tough to pick a favorite, any where I learn something new, Kendra's Git for DB code was excellent, as a noob to using Git, any learning I can pick up is a bonus...

    I've enjoyed Kendra's session, Use Git for database code: From cheat sheets to Pull Requests. Next I will have to try to apply that to work - better state approach or migration approach for us?
    Listening to Grant now...

    Extended Event Session was great.. didn't know those exited.. lots of opportunity there

    I enjoyed the DevOps/Remote Work session. Took me a little bit to get the right windows showing up. Didn't realize there was a "Chat" option until about 15 minutes in. Thought it was like other webinars where chat/questions went all together to comment.  I'll need to go back and catch some of the other sessions from today on the replay. There were a couple of others that looked interesting.
  • I really enjoyed Rob's presentation on docker containers. That framework of thinking about how data should be anonymized, sanitized and shrunk in each environment was really helpful to parse out just how much data is really needed to do database development work. Also liked the chat at the end. The discussions regarding source control was excellent and clarified a lot of questions I had with DevOps.

    Thank you Red Gate for putting this on and thank you to the presenters. I learned a few new tricks with Extended Events from Grant. Can't wait to see the rest of the presentations.
  • After Mr. Fritchey's Extended Events session, my clinging grasp to Profilers apron string has loosened a bit.

    I hope it was useful. Happy to answer any followups. I had more material and just ran out of time. I need to have about three hours for that session.

    WHOOP!!!

    And, it's Grant. Just Grant. Anyway, happy to help with any kind of additional questions you might have. Extended Events really is different. For more stuff, go to my blog, scarydba.com.

    There really is a lot of opportunity. It changes how you do things. It's not just capturing a given event. It's the ability to use the tool to manipulate the data to bring meaning out. Plus, like Profiler, you can still query the data too. Yeah, it's XML, but steal borrow example code from me, Erin Stellato, or others. That's the easy way to do it.

    There is some really informative material in these sessions. Looking forward to the rest of them! Kendra's Use Git for database code: From cheat sheets to Pull Requests has been one of my favorites so far.

    Lots of good tips from Andy's session today. I'll have to review some of those and take some notes for future use. The cheat sheet will be quite helpful.
  • LauraPLauraP Posts: 1 New member
    Only halfway through this Streamed Conference, but I have enjoyed most of the sessions. I think I have gotten the most from Grant's Extended Events and Andy's shortcuts for me personally, they are easy solutions for everyday problems. I am really interested in the data masking and have a good idea of where to start. I think it will help when we start putting the db into the K8s containers. Not there yet and we will proceed with GREAT caution.

    Enjoyed Steve Jones TSQLt session, very eye opening
  • gertburtgertburt Posts: 1 New member
    SQL Injection and tsqlt are both really great.
  • Fantastic sessions again today... Andy Mallon's shortcuts and Grant's SQL injection top of the shop for me today... Thank you again Redgate... Fantastic opportunity to learn "stuff" (for free too)...
  • samuelp101samuelp101 Posts: 1 New member
    Learn a lot more about SQL Injection from Grant Fritchey 's session.
  • LeighfcLeighfc Posts: 3 New member
    I enjoyed all the sessions today, I learnt a lot. I will definitely be trying out some of Andy's shortcuts and Grant's SQL injection was really informative, will be making sure we kill Bobby Tables.....
  • milansmilans Posts: 1 New member
    UPDATE dbo.Users WHERE Username = "me" SET IsWinner = 1 ? ;)
  • Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions on any of the stuff I've gone over.
  • All the sessions today were wonderful and very timely. Andy's tip about pausing the SQL Service changes everything. Wish I knew about that earlier.
  • TimG2TimG2 Posts: 2 New member
    I attended Andy Mallon's talk on SSMS shortcuts but came away with learning about David Klee's tip on causing SQL Server to blue screen. This is great for testing failure in the Availablity Group to see if failover works correctly.  Thanks for this great tip.

    Andy Mallon's SSMS shortcuts had a profound effect on me.  I am transitioning from DB2 DBA to SQL Server DBA and the shortcut that displays the query executed into the results was excellent.  That tip alone made me feel comfortable as a SQL DBA for the first time since I started my journey because of this feature in SSMS that reminds me of DB2.

    That's really great to hear. I'm going to pass this on to Andy.
