How Queries Work 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.

Training Opportunity!
 

SQL Saturday's are fantastic ways to meet others in the SQL Community as well as learn more about SQL Server.  SQL Saturday follow the same format as the PASS Summit with multiple sessions per hour to chose from.  These are regional events and they happen within driving distance of Columbus GA many times per year.  Check out http://sqlsaturday.com/ to see when the next meetings are.

Also are you on Twitter?  There is a huge SQL Community on Twitter.  Did you know you could tweat #sqlhelp to ask others questions?  Did you know #sqlpass is also available to ask questions regarding SQL PASS or any of the SQL Saturday events?

In my opinion one of the BEST training events is the PASS Summit.  http://www.sqlpass.org/  Check out the event.  There is still time to register.  The best of the best will be holding sessions from very basic T-SQL skills to the most advanced skillsets with BI, SSRS, SSIS, etc.  The Summit is a must attend kind of event.  We have at least 5 folks from our PASS chapter that are attending.
