Encourage. Energize. Empower.


There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.  – Kofi Annan


In the above quote, Secretary Annan was referring to women in developing nations.  However, it’s just as apt a description of women in technology. 
Encourage. Energize. Empower.  Those are pretty tall orders. The YOU is implied. How about we imply instead that it’s WE? As working women with a voice,  WE need to support each other. WE need to encourage each other to try harder, to reach farther and to stand taller. WE need to energize each other when we’re tired, when we stumble and when we need to rest. 
Where should you start? How about right here?  Here is a great place to start. 
We’ll do it together.

Moving from Profiler to Extended Events

For years, Profiler and traces were the way we answered the question, "What's happening in my SQL Server?" A new tool has emerged to answer that question with more options, which give you more information - Extended Events. In this talk, you will learn the building blocks of Extended Events sessions.You'll see a side-by-side comparison of how to create a trace and a session - and learn how much more information you gain from the session! You will also learn a step-by-step method to convert existing traces to sessions. After attending this session, you'll confidently be able to move from Profiler to Extended Events.
