I was in Argentina for the SQLSaturday event earlier this year and made friends with Javier Villegas a 20 year veteran in the DBA world. His session that day touched on extended events and while it is a bit of an advanced topic, I thought we could sit down and discuss it. I also include a few sounds I recorded from my trip.
