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
2011 – a talk on big data
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.
