A Chalk Talk on Scheduling: Understanding How SQL Server Decides What to Do
In this informal and interactive session, we will discuss how SQL Server determines what to execute. Along the way, we'll cover locking and blocking as well as wait statistics. If we finish early, be ready for some Pictionary!

This July is our 5th anniversary meeting as the Fort Worth SQL Server User Group. As a gift, we were given SQL Server Denali CPT 3! It was really great of Microsoft to get that out the door for us like that. Very thoughtful. It's like "Uncle Bill" sent us flowers. There will be additional pictures, food and merriment. Can't wait to see you all again.
Book Swap: We cleaned out our bookshelves. We're bringing them in for a book swap and give away. If you bring books, please take them back home if no one takes them. We will already have a truck load and don't wish to add to it. Bring your wheel barrows.
