6.20pm – Statement Execution and the Plan Cache by Kimberly L. Tripp
Kimberly will discuss the impact on caching / performance of different methods of statement execution. Briefly, she will also compare / contrast this with stored procedures. In the end, you’ll know the best way to request data so that stable requests are cached and unstable requests are not (giving you the most optimal performance).
7.20pm – Pizza, drinks and chat
7.50pm – Simplifying Extended Events with PowerShell by Chrissy LeMaire
Chrissy is the creator of dbatools, a fantastic speaker and a huge presence in the SQL community. She is a PowerShell MVP and I am genuinely humbled to have her speak with us this month. This remote talk (all the way from Belgium) has a SQL bias but is useful to both the SQL and PowerShell groups.
8.50pm – Thank You’s
