Topic: Tips and tricks for Writing Better Queries– sponsored by Idera.
Presenter: Joe Webb

However to truly get the best performance from your SQL Server, careful consideration should be given to the structure and logic of the queries. In this session, we’ll discuss some Transact-SQL tips and tricks that can be employed to help you write better queries, allowing your server to perform better.
