Aaron Bertrand

I’ve been immersed in the world of our favorite data platform as an end user, developer, DBA, and performance analyst since 1997. I have observed, developed, and broken countless bad habits and discovered many best practices through numerous experiments, trial and error, community interaction, and direct access to the product team at Microsoft.
In this workshop, I’ll share my practical knowledge and save you the substantial amount of labor I invested in learning it over two decades. We’ll talk about database design, indexes, query tuning, and the ups and downs of the newest features in SQL Server.
Whether you’re a developer, DBA, CTO, or anything in between, you can take this knowledge back to work and apply it immediately – improving performance, productivity, or both.
