Martin Bell

Martin Bell has aged considerably since starting to organise the SQLBits conferences; but is still a dashing and attractive redhead. He's worked on many relational database management systems and since the 1998 has specialized in SQL Server. He was first awarded Microsoft MVP (SQL Server) status in June 2003 proving he is not just a pretty face! As an insight into his masochistic tendancies he currently organises the Scottish Area and Leeds Area SQL Server User Group meetings. He is also a founding organiser of the highly successful SQLBits Community Conferences conclusive proof that he is slightly mad!!

How to use Perfmon, Visual Studio Team Edition, SQL Profiler, DTA, Analysing Trace Output and ClearTrace to identify poor performance areas in your system.
SQL Server 2008 has plenty of new, improved and updated features including extensions to Transact SQL. In this presentation Martin will talk about and demonstrate some of the new T-SQL features.
We all have tried and tested methods of doing things, but may be this new dog will help you do those old tricks?
