Watch Brent Tune Queries

Speaker: Brent Ozar, Microsoft Certified Master of SQL Server Brent Ozar Unlimited

Summary: Ever wonder how somebody else does it? Watch over the virtual shoulder of Microsoft Certified Master Brent Ozar as he walks you through the Stack Overflow public database export, shows you two queries, and then tunes them to make them dramatically faster. Along the way, you'll see several free tools in action that help make the process easier.

About Brent: Brent Ozar specializes in making SQL Server faster and more reliable. He is a Microsoft Certified Master of SQL Server and MVP, and has over a decade of experience. Brent co-authored Professional SQL Server 2008 Internals and Troubleshooting, created sp_Blitz™ and sp_AskBrent™, and he loves sharing knowledge at BrentOzar.com.
