Remember the old National Lampoon Vacation movies? Just like the Griswolds, renowned data expert, speaker and SQL evangelist Kevin Kline and his family are hitting the road. SQL Professionals of Chattanooga are proud to present a stop on the tour.

SELECT statements have a reputation for being very easy to write, but hard to write very well. This session will take you through ten of the most problematic patterns and anti-patterns when writing queries and how to deal with them all. Loaded with live demonstrations and useful techniques, this session will teach you how to take your SQL Server queries mundane to masterful.

Learn how to assess query performance, guarantee consistent query tuning, and avoid ten all-too-common performance killers in SELECT statements running on Microsoft SQL Server.

Featuring SQL Vacation swag and refreshments by SQL Sentry.
