Shortcuts from an Impatient DBA ~ Andy Mallon


This session is about performance tuning your day. We spend a lot of time thinking about how to write efficient code, but we don't spend a lot of time thinking about how to be efficient at writing code. In this session I will show you some lesser known keyboard shortcuts, tips, tricks, and hacks that will make your day easier. These are the tricks I've picked up over the years that help me get my work done quicker and easier. Whether you're a Junior Developer or a Senior DBA with decades of battle scars, you'll learn something in this session.
