Featured Presentation:

SQL Engine internals.

Chris Bell, Founder / Lead SQL Consultant WaterOx Consulting

Knowing how SQL Server works internally allows you to identify performance bottlenecks in your SQL Server environment quickly. We will discuss SQL's three primary components, along with mentioning an oft overlooked fourth one, and how they cooperate to work with your data. As we wade deeper through the details of each component, you will learn how, and why, certain practices ultimately impact the performance of your system.
