Title: SQL Server Query Tuning & Optimization
This full-day seminar will show you how to optimize SQL Server queries and create high-performance applications. You will learn about the inner workings of the query processor so you can write better queries and provide the query processor with the quality information it needs to produce efficient execution plans.

Topics include:
Understand how the query optimizer works
Troubleshoot queries using extended events, SQL trace, dynamic management views (DMVs), the data collector, and other tools
Work with query operators for data access, joins, aggregations, parallelism, and updates
Speed up queries and dramatically improve application performance by creating the right indexes
Understand statistics and how to detect and fix cardinality estimation errors
Maximize OLTP query performance using In-Memory OLTP (Hekaton) features, including memory-optimized tables and natively compiled stored procedures
Monitor and promote plan caching and reuse to improve application performance
Improve the performance of data warehouse queries using columnstore indexes
Handle query processor limitations with hints and other methods
