Conferences 2013

In 2013, I have spoken at 11 conferences and 14 PASS regional group meetings (…I can hardly believe this number myself…).

That year, I basically completed my “Germany tour” on the topic of Extended Events, which had started with the SQL Server 2012 launch in Cologne in 2012, and also expanded the tour to our two neighboring countries, Denmark and the Netherlands. The half-day PreCon of SQLSaturday Rheinland was, so to speak, the big “final” :-).

To those of you who would like to dive deeper into XEvents in practical workshops, I recommend the SQL Server Master-Class “Workshop Advanced Techniques for Tracing with Extended Events” (XE2) on this topic.

In the summer, I applied myself to my 2nd specialty topic, i.e. security, and developed in intensive tests a hitherto undocumented attack technique of the type DoS attack on SQL Server via SQLInjection, as well as a form of privilege elevation, all of which I demonstrated at SQLSaturday Rheinland for the first time, and which I will show in the German regional groups, at the SQL Saturday Istanbul and at the SQL Rally Amsterdam next.

(Note: I am only hinting at details on the DoS attack so as not to provide any templates for automated variants. I will be blogging extensively on privilege elevation in the upcoming months to train developers.)
