    Hi thanks again for the webinar yesterday, I’m new to execution plans and found the content very accessible and informative. Will you be posting the webinar recording at some time? Thanks!

    Thank you. I’m glad it was helpful. I won’t be posting it, but I think PragmaticWorks will. I think this link has it:

    Grant, thanks for the precon! Well worth the money, extra night and travel. You did an absolutely fantastic job. I am blown away that this was your first pre con and I feel like I could sit there for all three days in your class. Also, I really like your scary presentation style. Tons of energy and you were very much engaged with the audience. For anyone reading who is contemplating your next precon: SIGN UP! You won’t be disappointed.

    Great Grant,
    It was just wonderful getting scared by Scary DBA but now I am blessed by your presentations, blogs, write ups & Twitter acquaintance..
    I will live w/o fear hereafter watching you present.

    Great demo today on execution plans. I was looking for your slide show from today on your website. (?)

    All the .doc resources are invalid, at least so it seems.

  • By Grant Fritchey, January 13, 2015 @ 5:57 am

    Note the comment at the top of the file listing. They are not .doc files but .zip files that need to be renamed.

    Oops – skipping lines here. Thank you and apologies for this :-)

  • By Grant Fritchey, January 13, 2015 @ 6:50 am

    Not a problem. It’s a valid question. Sorry that I had to store the stuff that way.
