In July 2017 Frank Geisler and I founded the SIG – SQL Server Internals Group. Since we had not found suitable speakers after the seventh online event, we did not actively promote the platform anymore. But on our youtube channel there are four sessions archived, which were edited and uploaded by Frank in hours of rework.
Now three years have passed, and the SQL Server Internals Group has been forgotten by most people, but still we received many requests when the format will be continued. Therefore, we have decided, strengthened by Uwe Ricken, to revive SIG and hope to win international speakers for our platform through our better network. The international format also explains why we prefer presenting in English.
Uwe already kicked things off in mid-April with his session on “User Defined Functions from SQL Server 2000 to 2019”. This session was also recorded and was uploaded by Frank on the youtube channel.
As before, we focus on the SQL Server Engine only, which has been expanded with several features in the SQL Server 2019 and thus certainly offers interesting topics.
If you are interested in a certain topic, just send an email to or talk to Frank, Uwe or me directly. Even if you have always wanted to hold a SQL Server Engine Deep Dive Session, we are happy to support you – just send your abstracts to the same email address. The duration of your presentation should be limited to about one hour.
We will publish the dates for our group in the PASS Newsletter and Meetup in time and hope that you will join the next online sessions.
