What we’re about
Every friday, at noon Central European Time, a new speaker will present on a new topic (or by all means by the same topic as a previous speaker, with a different angle).
All the sessions are recorded and published on Youtube. You will be able to watch the sessions on the homepage, the posts about upcoming speakers and their session will be updated with an embedded Youtube video.
You register to upcoming events on our Meetup page: https://www.meetup.com/SQL-Friday/. Teams link is available after RSVPing to a meetup. Sessions will be streamed with Microsoft Teams. As nice as it is to be able to watch the sessions on Youtube, we want interaction. Sessions are way more fun and interesting when we can interrupt the speaker with questions in the chat, right? ”Hey, can you show that again, what the heck kind of operator was that?”
Do you want to speak at SQL Friday? First season, we did an ongoing Call for Speakers during the season, but now we do Call for Speakers for a whole season in advance of the season. Check out sessionize.com to find Call for Sepakers when it's open. Typically, Call for Speakers for the Q1Q2-seasons are open from december to early january. For Q3Q4 season, it opens in the summer sometime, and remains open until late august.
Code of conduct
If you participate in a SQL Friday session, you must follow this simple code of conduct.
Be nice to people. This includes the speaker, the host/moderator and of course all the other attendees. Respect other people’s right to their own space. Don’t get in peoples face.
Understand that irony doesn’t work as well in writing as it might do in an in-person meeting, where your body language helps you.
Understand that you can not and may not be the judge of anyone else’s feelings. If you do something that offends someone, even when that is not the purpose, don’t argue. Just back down. You may or may not understand what was going on, but SQL Friday is not meant for you to test limits.
See, that wasn’t so hard, was it? If you feel anyone is not respecting this very simple Code of Conduct, contact the moderator during the session or write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – we want to keep SQL Friday clean from abuse.

- SQL Friday #126 - SQL Server Data Storage: Pages, Extents, and More!Link visible for attendees
Data in SQL Server is stored on pages, but what does that mean? What are pages and how are they structured? What are the different types of pages and how are they used to organize data? What are extents and how are they used to organize pages?
This session is a dive into SQL Server storage fundamentals and how this knowledge can be used to make better decisions with regards to files, filegroups, tables, indexes, and more! What starts as a review of pages and their function will quickly evolve into viewing (and understanding) the contents of pages. Also discussed will be corruption, what causes it, and how knowledge of SQL Server data storage can assist in resolving corruption!
