On Saturday the 27th of March, I’m going to be presenting two sessions at SQLSaturday #29 in Birmingham, Alabama.
- 1:30 PM: Tips and Tricks for Writing Better Queries. Transact-SQL is not a very difficult language to learn. As long as the syntax is correct, it can be quite forgiving. However to truly get the best performance from your SQL Server, careful consideration should be given to the structure and logic of the queries. In this session, we’ll discuss some Transact-SQL tips and tricks that can be employed to help you write better queries, allowing your server to perform better.
- 2:45 PM: SQL Server Locking & Blocking Made Simple. A good working knowledge of how SQL Server makes use of locking and transaction isolation levels can go a long way toward improving an application’s performance. In this session, we will explore SQL Server’s locking methodology and discover techniques for enhancing query response times.
