In this session, Microsoft MVP, and industry veteran Andy Warren will discuss practical tips for developers based on common mistakes and misunderstandings about how to most effectively leverage SQL Server. Not just "do it this way", we'll talk about why it matters (at least to the DBA's!). Great stuff for developers, but also useful for DBA's who don't deal with the development side as much or perhaps want to make a list of things to take back to their developers. Fast paced, plenty of time for Q&A as we go.
Andy Warren is a SQL Server consultant and trainer based in Orlando, FL. Focusing on administration, performance tuning, and SQL Server patterns and practices, he’s been a SQL Server MVP since 2008. Andy served two terms on the PASS Board of Directors, was a founding principal in SQLServerCentral, and created both the SQLSaturday and SQLRally event models.
