I am pleased to announce that I will be speaking at two separate SQL Saturdays in March and April of this year.
The first event is in Victoria (the capital city of British Columbia, located on Vancouver Island), and the second is in Edmonton, the capital city of Alberta.
I will be presenting the same session at both events (Managing and monitoring SQL Server on Linux from the command line), but I have also been asked to present a second session in Edmonton, so stay tuned.
Here is the session title and abstract:
When SQL Server arrived on Linux in 2017, Microsoft brought with it a database engine that works exactly the same as it does on Windows. While you can manage and monitor SQL Server on Linux using existing tools designed for Windows, there are command line tools that will feel right at home to seasoned command-line and scripting veterans, including Oracle DBAs. This session will cover mssql-conf (for configuring the server instance),
mssql-cli(for connecting to the database engine), and
dbfs(mounting a virtual file system) to query database management views (DMVs) using bash.
