Title: 50 Things All SQL Server Developers Need to Know 


The early bird discount of $99 closed on May 15th. The class fee is now $125 for all registrations made thereafter, so be sure to reserve your spot.  Class size is limited and registration will be based on a first come first served basis.  Read the registration page for more details about the class. But here’s a quick overview:

In this session, you’ll learn:

1. Internal operations of the SQL Server query optimizer and caching mechanisms and their  impact on T-SQL code performance, including ways to shortcut default behavior using trace flags.

2. Tricks, techniques, and metadata analysis needed to make T-SQL code, including queries and stored procedures, achieve top performance and maximum reliability.

3. A variety of patterns and anti-patterns in T-SQL coding that are common challenges for all but the most advanced database developers.

With these 50 tricks and techniques in your coding toolkit, you’ll be able to write T-SQL code that consumes less system CPU, memory, and IO, while being easier to maintain and offering faster performance.

 I hope to see you there!

  1. I attended the FL SQL Saturday pre-con. Can you send me a copy of the SQL Sentry book on High Performance vol1?

    Appreciated your presentation.


  2. Hi Kate, The general best approach for the eBook is to email As I mentioned in the pre-con seminar, I’m often traveling. So you’ll get much faster response from the team back at HQ. I will email them on your behalf. Hope that helps! Best regards, -Kev
