In this purely demo-based session, I will show several real-life attacks, from mere reading up to disrupting service availability via various types of manual and automated SQL Injection, including a broadly unknown elevation of privileges attack.
Error handling in T-SQL stored procedures
This session will look at SQOOP, PIG and HIVE. Three tools which are essential in your Big Data Toolbox. We'll look at what they do, how they do it and why you would want to use them
This session goes beyond the classical star schema modeling, exploring new techniques to model data with Power Pivot and SSAS Tabular. You will see how brute-force power in DAX allows different data models than those used in SSAS Multidimensional
Impress the boss and your colleagues by delivering Dashboards, KPIS, maps and Scorecards wrapped in a tablet-ready interface with SSRS
Everyone wants a job they enjoy and look forward to working at each day. This session will present practical techniques for improving your brand and giving you the chance to interview for the job you want.
Information Workers and Data Analysts do “myth busting" on corporate performance and forecasts on regular basis. This session uncovers ways to take advantage of Power BI as Software as a Service (SaaS) for a "myth busting" lab you can try at home!
Sets are king when it comes to SQL Server, but sometimes you need to see data row by row. Window
Functions help you get the best of both worlds. Learn when and where these functions can help you get what you need without compromising performance.
Learn ready-to-use DAX patterns improving development speed of Power Pivot solutions. Good also for SSAS Tabular developers.
We all know that ‘Indexing’ is KING when it comes to achieving high levels of performance in SQL Server. When Indexing also combines 2 of the Enterprise features: Partitioning & Compression
Join me for an hour of playing with different ETL patterns by using Clustered Columnstore Indexes. Using different Hardware might lead you to different conclusions,and the size of the workload is always the paramount of your performance.Loading data first and then creating a Clustered Columnstore or creating Clustered Columnstore and than loading - join me to find the answers!
In this session we will discuss Data Governance around Power BI and on-prem platforms. How to avoid dataset-hell. What are the best practices for sharing queries? Who is the famous Data Steward ?
Learn where to start reading execution plans and how to interpret them in order to understand how to tune poorly performing queries.
You don't buy a lot of servers, but you're about to deploy SQL Server, and you only get one chance to make it right. Brent Ozar will boil down everything you need to know into just a few simple decisions including SQL Edition, sockets, and RAM.
Join this session to make a deep dive into how SQL Server implements physical locking with lightweight synchronization objects like Latches and Spinlocks.
In this session we'll look at the structure and basics of MDX, the Multi Dimensional query eXpression language for querying Analysis Services OLAP cubes. We'll start at the beginning, so no previous experience necessary.
Once you've decided to move to Azure with any of your databases, you're going to need to know how they're performing, this session shows you.
Alberto will start with a simple query and he will perform on stage all the necessary steps to optimize it, showing you the tools ant the techniques used to identify the bottleneck and to fix the performance issues
Because there are always at least two sides of the performance coin, in this session aimed at .Net and SQL developers, we'll dive into the workings of the .Net SqlClient and give you insight into way more than just SqlCommand.ExecuteReader()
Writing efficient queries with temporal predicates is finally not a problem anymore.
In this demo-rich presentation, Brian shows you some of the common and not so common ways to tune SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).
Explore Power Query features to import data from existing Corporate BI systems.
An in-depth session on advanced Power Query functionality and the M language
The query optimizer is at the heart of SQL Server. Much of the its' internal workings are hidden from the user, but can be revealed by using a selection of undocumented trace flags. This session will be a deep dive into the these internals.
Join me in this session to get a basic understanding of Bookmark Lookups, and why they can be dangerous in SQL Server.
