Geek Sync | The New Robot DBAs in SQL Server 2017, 2019, and Azure

You've been hearing about all these robots that are coming to take your job. They're going to automate all the performance tuning and make your life way easier, right? Or harder, I guess...since you'll be looking for a job. Thing is, most of that is just plain ol' marketing hype that Microsoft is using trying to sell your management on upgrading to newer versions or moving to the cloud.

Register for our Geek Sync, The New Robot DBAs in SQL Server 2017, 2019, and Azure, on Wednesday, October 7 at 11 AM CT with host Brent Ozar.

In this session, Brent Ozar will blow the marketing smoke away, show you these features in action, and show you which ones are ready for prime time. You'll walk away better equipped to have conversations with management about why you should (or shouldn't) upgrade, and how you can use these features not just to stay employed, but have a better career.

Speaker: Brent Ozar loves to make SQL Server faster and more reliable. He created sp_Blitz® and sp_AskBrent®, coauthored Professional SQL Server 2008 Internals and Troubleshooting, and he loves sharing knowledge at He's a Microsoft Certified Master of SQL Server and a Microsoft MVP.
