Webinar Overview:

It would be absurd to hand someone with lots of driving experience the keys to an airplane and tell them that they're now a pilot. Yet, every year countless IT professionals find themselves suddenly responsible for the management and uptime of SQL Server hosts and mission-critical databases. If you're a “reluctant DBA” and don't quite know where to start, then you'll want to join self-taught DBA and independent SQL Server consultant Michael K. Campbell for a quick, informative, and easy-to-understand presentation of SQL Server Essentials for Non-DBAs.

By attending this presentation you'll learn about the core responsibilities and concerns that you'll have to stay abreast of to be viable DBA. You'll also gain a better understanding of how SQL Server works, which will help you overcome many of the facets of SQL Server management and functionality that can be so non-intuitive to non-DBAs. As such, you'll learn about SQL Server memory usage, backups, security, and other best practices that will help steer you in the right direction as a DBA.
