SQL Server Agent: The life preserver for the drowning DBA

211 E. William Cannon Drive
Austin, Texas 78745
Time: 18:00 - 20:30

Title: SQL Server Agent: The life preserver for the drowning DBA
by: Lance Tidwell

Summary: Automation is a key part to becoming a great DBA. Without automation a DBA can start to drown in a sea of repeating tasks. The SQL Server Agent can serve as the much-needed life preserver to pull your head above the water. In this session you will learn at how to setup the SQL Agent as well as creating jobs and alerts within the agent to help you with daily, monthly, yearly tasks. In addition we will look into how to monitor the jobs and alerts created. Lastly we will talk about some common pitfalls to watch out for when dealing with the SQL Server Agent.

Speaker: Lance Tidwell, Database Administrator TicketCity:
Bio: Lance Tidwell, from the Austin, TX, area, has worked as a SQL Server DBA for the last 11 years. During his time as a DBA he has found his passion for all things SQL, but specifically for performance tuning. He has a life-long quest to always be learning new things; currently this quest has lead him to explore more about the Data Analytics/ Data Science areas.
