Thanks for dropping by the MinionWare booth!
PASS Summit 2015 is done and gone, but the memories – and the recordings, and stickers, and all the rest – will remain for all time. Â Well, more or less. Â We had a good time talking at the MinionWare booth, and we appreciate you letting us scan your badge. (In addition to being good for marketing, it’s actually way more fun than it should be.) This page is for you, oh mighty conference wanderer. Â WeÂ have been to the rainy city and back again, and now that you’re here:Â read, click, download, recover.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_divider admin_label=”Divider” color=”#ffffff” show_divider=”off” /][et_pb_tabs admin_label=”Tabs”][et_pb_tab title=”More MinionWare”]
AddingÂ Minion EnterpriseÂ to any environment is like adding 100 DBAs to your team. GoodÂ DBAs, the kind that save you tons of time and do cool projects in their spare time.Â ME, as we affectionately call it, centrally manages your environment and provides you with masses of data, views, reports, alerting and more.
OutstandingÂ Backup and Maintenance
ConsultingÂ andÂ Training
Follow up on Summit Sessions
The PASS Summit has several recordings available onlineÂ on the PASS TV page,Â including theÂ two keynote sessions, and sessions by Ryan Adams, Gail Shaw, Kendra Little, Itzik Ben-Gan, Jason Brimhall, and more.
Random Advice Time: DBAs know that study isÂ vital…especially now that SQL Server seems to be on a 2 year release cycle.Â We have a bit of advice that we give in our professional development sessions: pay yourself first. You can fit study into yourÂ daily routine, simply by setting aside the first 20 minutes each day.
If you want the full set of conference sessions, you can buy them for a significant discount (as an attendee). If you canÂ convince your company to getÂ the sessions, you can set up a simply outstanding weekly lunch-and-learn with em![/et_pb_tab][et_pb_tab title=”SQL Community”]
