Adelaide SQL Server User Group

 

Welcome to the Adelaide SQLPASS chapter. You can find us on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, at the Microsoft offices, Level 12, 147 Pirie St.

There's a link below to get on the mailing list.

We use EventBrite for meeting registrations - please look at adssug.eventbrite.com for a list of our meetings.

Previously, we used sqlserver.org.au, and you can see an archive of events on that site - but the Adelaide mailing list from there hasn't been used for some time.

Table Expressions: So Much More Than CTEs
You use table expressions a lot but may not have given them much thought as a tool for query tuning. Whether to use simplifiable table expressions or materialized tables can be a significant consideration for large queries, and one that shouldn't be ignored. This session will teach you how SQL Server handles table expressions and how they impact important performance features such as joins and the shapes of execution plans. Understanding where, when, and why you should and shouldn't use them can improve your T-SQL in all kinds of ways.
