Session 1 - Phil Grayson Family bucket of SQL nuggets
A collection of tips, tricks and myths covering the administration and development of SQL Server & Azure. This talk is for anyone that works with SQL Server and includes topics such as squeezing the most out of your systems, understanding why your queries won’t run in parallel and simulating execution plans when your DBA won’t let you near production.
After spending 14 years creating one of the world’s largest central healthcare systems, Phil Grayson (@databoffin) now works as a consultant for xTEN, where his varied but in-depth experience has helped to transform IT systems across Europe.
He is also the co-founder of Aireforge, the creators of Aireforge Studio, a proud Friend of Redgate, organiser of Data & Gravy, Leeds SQL User Group and a frequent volunteer at SQLBits.
