Performance as a Feature

Thu, Dec 18 2014 19:00 UTC

Performance as a Feature

A high performing data tier does not happen by accident. High quality shops understand that performance must be designed as a feature. While SQL Server remains one of the most popular databases in the world, the modern software engineer would rather learn Entity Framework, Dapper, or ORMLite over straight TSQL. The TSQL keys have in many cases been handed over to a service tier or ORM; maintaining a high performing database in this environment places significant emphasis on fundamental design. This session will identify the 5 most important factors that every database requires to support "performance as a feature". This session is for the Software Engineer or DBA/Data Architect/DBE who works with database servers whose TSQL has been abstracted at the application layer.
