TechDays 2010: 5 Things SQL Server does different from what many developers expect

Sign in to queue


This talk is intended for the developer who knows about inner and outer joins, and knows how to write a T-SQL stored procedure. But sometimes developers bump into ‘weird’ behavior of SQL Server. This sessions dives into 5 common misconceptions developers have on SQL Server. We touch upon these topics: Transactions (nested transactions, the five and a half isolation levels), stored procedures (do they really speed up my query, what is the effect of the pre-compilation?), error handling (errors in a try block will jump to the catch block, don’t they?), statistics (SQL Server builds them automatically, so I shouldn’t worry about them, right?) and index design (we have a wizard for this, why would we need something else?).
