Kimberly Tripp is going to visit PLSSUG in January (online meeting)

Paul Randal has recently proposed that SQLSkills could give sessions on the user groups meetings. I emailed him immediately and – making the long story short – the PLSSUG (Polish SQL Server Users Group) will be hosting Kimberly Tripp on 29 th January at 6PM local time. Please visit the  community webpage 

Here are some details:

Stored Procedure Optimization

Presenter: Kimberly L. Tripp

Abstract: Kimberly will discuss stored procedure caching and the potential for
performance problems due to a problem known as parameter sniffing. There are
some common solutions and while they can drastically improve performance, they
can also cause other problems. Sometimes a hybrid solution is needs, from this
session, you’ll know the best way to write procedures so that stable requests
are cached and unstable requests are not (giving you the most optimal
performance without wasting resources).

SQL Server MVP and a Microsoft Regional Director for over 10 years; she’s an

I hope that this is great news.

And I promise – this will not be the only meeting :).
