Surviving Success: Performance Tuning Under Pressure

Rapid and runaway success is the best way to expose all of the gaps, rough edges and pain points in your back end services. Under live-site pressure to fix issues, making the crucial set of engineering choices and investments can be challenging. This session will take a hands-on walk through scaling a representative back-end application (written in .NET Core and Docker on Linux) from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of requests per second, illustrating data, techniques, and common performance barriers from real customer deployments

Vern Rabe
Temp Tables & Table Variables

You may have heard that temp tables are better than table variables for larger data sets. Or that table variables don’t have statistics. Or that table variables are outside of transaction scope. Or that temp tables and table variables log to the transaction log like permanent tables do. We’ll look at these in a little more detail, and maybe even dispel a myth or two in this short session.
