David J. DeWitt

John P. Morgridge Professor, Emeritus


Since I joined Microsoft in 2008 I have been asked each year to give a talk to PASS – the annual SQL Server users group meeting.

The talks have covered the following topics

2008 – parallel DB systems

2009 – a general talk on how technology trends have impacted the design of DB systems

2010 – an introduction to query optimization

2011 – a talk on big data and Hadoop

Feel free to use these Powerpoint decks, in whole, or in parts. The talks are each about 75 minutes long. There is no copyright on the decks. All I ask is that if you "lift" slides for a talk that you acknowledge where you got them. Enjoy.
