This Meetup is past

Understanding concurrency is critical when taking a database solution from startup to enterprise scale and beyond.

Concurrency problems can restrict the throughput you get from SQL Server. So your goal is to develop an application that can avoid these bottlenecks and make use of all the hardware it's given.

In this session, we'll cover several enemies of concurrency,

• excessive blocking,

• transaction correctness,

• deadlocks,

• and how to make sure you're not accidentally misusing tempdb
