Adam Machanic, Boston-based SQL Server developer, shares his experiences with programming, monitoring, and performance tuning SQL Server. And the occasional battle with the query optimizer.
Today at TechEd in New Orleans I delivered a breakout session entitled "Data, Faster: Microsoft SQL Server Performance Techniques with SQLCLR."
This session covered a number of techniques for using SQLCLR as a query tuning tool, especially for big, ugly, and heavily analytical queries.
Thank you so much for all who attended and took the time to evaluate the session. For those of you who weren't there, the video will (apparently) be posted soon on the link above.
The full set of demo material is attached to this post. Leave a comment if you have any questions for me.
Enjoy, and may your queries be ultra-speedy!
