Query Optimization Explained in 15 Demos

You've got the hang of writing queries and creating indexes, but once you hit F5 you have no idea what's going to happen.

  • Why did I get that plan?
  • Why didn't you use that index?
  • Why are you slow?
In this session, we'll look a little deeper into query optimization, and why SQL Server makes the choices it does.

This will be fast-paced, demo-heavy and slide-light.

Speaker Bio: Erik Darling
