Abstract: SQL Server Defaults Suck!!!
By Kevin Boles
If you just click next-next-next and think you have a good-to-go SQL Server THINK-AGAIN!! 🙂 There are umpteen things you just GOTTA change right out of the box if you want your potentially very expensive and always precious SQL Server resource to perform and behave optimally. This session will cover a laundry list from data and log file growth factors to Windows power settings and many useful items in between.
Unit Testing SQL Server
In the nearly 20 years I have been working with SQL Server, most of that as an independent consultant, I can count two hands the number of clients I have come across that had ANY database tests constructed. I can count on TWO FINGERS the number of them that had repeatable database tests. Even the most ardent Agile/Scrum/pick-your-new-and-shiny-development-mantra shops hardly ever do anything more than wave a magic wand at testing the database, because it can be REALLY HARD to do and do correctly. In this session we will cover examples of why repeatable database testing is CRITICALLY important and then examine both a free and a low-cost commercial product to ease the pain and improve developer efficiency.
