Making the Leap from Profiler to Extended Events
If you’re like me, you’ve been using SQL Trace and Profiler since you started using SQL Server. They’re like old friends, tried and true. You know how they work, you know what you can capture, you know how to find the data you need. But now you’ve been told that your good friends have been deprecated in SQL Server 2012, and you need to become best friends with Extended Events. What is THAT all about? It’s ok. Really. In this session we’ll look at Profiler and Extended Events side by side to see how easy it is to transition to Extended Events. We’ll step through real world examples using Extended Events to do what you’re used to doing with Trace, and even more. You can find the time learn Extended Events…today.

My Favourite Pie (chart): Simple Rules for Clear and Attractive Visuals
Do you want to deliver information in an effective and efficient way? Even when the attractiveness of a report is important, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Join this session where Markus will show you some simple rules for helping end-users to understand the story their data is trying to tell.
You will see how you can implement those rules with different tools from Microsoft’s BI stack – resulting in clear and concise information delivered through beautiful dashboards. You will also learn how to identify sub-optimal dashboards and what you can do to improve them.
