50 Things All SQL Server Developers Need to Know

Abstract: What are the most problematic patterns and anti-patterns that trip up SQL Server developers on a daily basis? What sort of SQL and Transact-SQL challenges does every SQL Server developer encounter at some point in their career? This full-day, pre-conference seminar takes a tour of the most common and challenging issues that database developers face. Learn how to conquer them in the lab today so that they won’t take you surprise in the future. Loaded with live demonstrations and useful techniques, this session will teach you how to take your SQL Server queries mundane to masterful.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Internal operations of the SQL Server query optimizer and caching mechanisms and their impact on T-SQL code performance, including ways to  shortcut default behavior using trace flags.
  • Tricks, techniques, and      metadata analysis needed to make T-SQL code, including queries and stored      procedures, achieve top performance and maximum reliability.
  • A variety of patterns and      anti-patterns in T-SQL coding that are common challenges for all but the      most advanced database developers.

With these 50 tricks and techniques in your coding toolkit, you’ll be able to write T-SQL code that consumes less system CPU, memory, and IO, while being easier to maintain and offering faster performance.

Prerequisites: Intermediate competence in SQL and Transact-SQL syntax, such as coding with DML, DDL, and DCL transactions, using cursors and variables, and invoking functions and procedures. Basic familiarity with reading execution plans.
