Iowa SQL Server User Group

Welcome to the Iowa SQL Server User Group (IASSUG)!

IASSUG is a Chapter/Local Group located in Des Moines, IA, in partnership with the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS).  We hold monthly group meetings usually on the third Thursday of the calendar month.

Since 2014, we are proud to have helped I-380 PASS and QCPASS (Quad Cities) with annual event planning and on-site staff duties at SQLSaturday Iowa City.

Want to join our local group?  Please check out our Meetup.com group Des Moines SQL Users Group.  Meeting events will be posted on that site as well as here, with any changes or added details updated at the Meetup group.

Learn tips and tricks from the professionals.  No sales pitch, just a bunch of Data Huggers getting together to learn something new!

Making the Leap from Profiler to Extended Events

Speaker: Erin Stellato, Principal Consultant SQLskills

Summary: If you’re like me, you’ve been using SQL Trace and Profiler since you started using SQL Server. They’re like old friends, tried and true. You know how they work, you know what you can capture, you know how to find the data you need. But now you’ve been told that your good friends have been deprecated in SQL Server 2012, and you need to become best friends with Extended Events. What is THAT all about? It’s ok. Really. In this session we’ll look at Profiler and Extended Events side by side to see how easy it is to transition to Extended Events. We’ll step through real world examples using Extended Events to do what you’re used to doing with Trace, and even more. You can find the time learn Extended Events…today
