Today I had the honor to present my session in SQLBits 2023, which is my favorite community event ever. I haven't been to SQLBits in person since before Covid, so I am pretty excited to be here again.
My session title was "The Most Important Performance Factor in SQL Server & Azure SQL". I'm talking about Statistics, in case you wondered. In the session, I explained what statistics are, how they are created and updated, and why they are so important for the performance of your queries.
I also demonstrated all kinds of tips and best practices related to statistics.
I promised to make all the session materials available for download. So here it is - click to download.
I hope you enjoyed my session, and I hope to see you again at the next SQLBits or maybe at another event before that.
