It is a very cold and rainy day for the first SQL Saturday of 2017. Nashville is one of the events I attend every year as there are many members of the #SQLFamily that also attend. I am getting to do two sessions this year. First up at 8:30 am is my presentation on “The PROCESS of Queries”. This is the one I have been requested to present the most often. It is a very beginner level into how queries are optimized and how this effects batches, transactions, and errors. The second session will be at 1:30 pm and is a brand new presentation for a SQL Saturday, “The Basics of Data Manipulation”. This is from one of my favorite chapters from the T-SQL courses that I teach and I am really excited to put it into a one hour session format.
