Featured Presentation:

Inside the Query Optimizer

Bradley Ball, Data Platform Management Lead Pragmatic Works

When it comes to SQL Server one of the biggest request you hear is “How can I make my Query Run FASTER!?”. The answer understanding the first step in that process Is understanding the Query Optimizer. Understanding the Optimizer beings with knowing the Rules. The way our queries are written reflect directly on the output that we get. In this session we will look at the rules in SQL Server, write queries to show those rules in action, and walk out with a better understanding of how the Optimizer works.
