Friday Reading 2016-11-25

Friday again so before I spend a weekend watching sci-fi movies, I’ll be reading:-

Query wait stats in SQL 2016 SP1 Execution Plans

(N.B.- To get this to work you have to uncomment all the lines in the section specified and then run SSMS as administrator. Interestingly enough this unlocks the dark theme but it’s not complete, the custom areas of SSMS won’t change)

Giving back with code
Steph Locke talks about the reasons why you should make the code you write publicly available

SQL Server v.Next—Linux Preview and Ola Hallengren’s Jobs
