Great news! I was accepted this weekend to speak at SQLSaturday Los Angeles! This officially counts as a level up for me for my deadlock resolution quest. The event is being held at Loyola Marymount University on June 13th at St. Robert’s Hall. You can register here: https://www.sqlsaturday.com/978/eventhome.aspx.
My topic is “Code Smells: How to Keep Your Code from Stinking!” Maybe you’ve had some experience writing SQL, but no one’s ever told you what not to do. Or maybe you’re aware of some bad habits to avoid when writing SQL, but no one has ever shown you why a bad practice can hurt your query – or SQL Server. Perhaps you feel a little more confident with your TSQL, but don’t understand why your queries aren’t running as quickly as you would like. Bad SQL coding practices are known in the SQL community as “code smells”. Sign up for this hour-long workshop where you will work with me through five common coding mistakes that can make performance stink. By the time we’re done, you’ll have a better idea of how to freshen up some problem queries.
There will be a lot of other great speakers and topics, so please join us for a great time as we learn from each other and network! I’m looking forward to seeing you there.
