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.

SQL Server Take Over: Establishing a Baseline with Lowry Kozlowski

SQL Server Take Over: Establishing a Baseline

Performance assessment and tuning for the beginner DBA Have you ever inherited a group of servers with not a lot of documentation to accompany them? Do you have a lot of undocumented or new servers in your environment and you want to establish some baseline configuration setting prior to making changes? You need up to date information on the system very quickly. The server is running slowly... or is it? Slow compared to what? Before you begin digging into performance issues, there are some baseline metrics you should have established. Only after the information has been gathered, can a plan of attack be developed to help resolve issues with performance. Attendees in this session will learn how to quickly gather information, review the results and get an action plan on the next step in performance tuning.
