Featured Presentation

How Queries Work

Speaker: Jon Boulineau, Manager of Analytic Data Integration

Summary: If you've been writing T-SQL code for a while, but have never delved into what happens after you submit your queries there is a whole world that you are missing. Taking the next step as a T-SQL developer requires understanding the basics of the SQL Server architecture and what it means to use a declarative language. Have you ever wondered why cursors are so slow, why query performance can be unpredictable, or how you can begin to analyze your queries more deeply? In this session we will cover what SQL Server has to do to turn your T-SQL code into the results you expect and how you can use this knowledge to make your code better. Session Level: Intermediate

About Jon: Jon Boulineau is a 15 year IT veteran. He is currently Manager of Analytic Data Integration at a major healthcare company and has survived phases as a network engineer, systems administrator, developer, and DBA in his career. He resides in Spring Hill, TN with his wife and four children




Alternate/Additional BI Meetings

Our user group is already great but we think we can make it better.  Soon we will be offering an additional meeting that will cater to the Business Intelligence crowd. EVERYONE is welcome. This meeting will be held in the Cool Springs/Brentwood area. The meeting time and location have not been secured yet but we can tell you that we are shooting for an early evening time in the middle of the week.  We will plan to have meetings every-other month until we build up a following.
