June 2018 WISSUG meeting

Exploring Why UDFs and Nested Views Hinder the Query Optimizer

Present by: Andy Yun (SentryOne.com)

Ever found yourself deconstructing endless layers of nested code?

Is your T-SQL codebase written in an object-oriented format with functions & views?

Did you know that object-oriented code reuse can significantly hinder the Query Optimizer? 

In this session, learn how T-SQL is not like other common programming languages.

We will deep dive inside the Query Optimizer to understand why applying object-oriented

principles can be detrimental to your T-SQL's performance. Extensive demos will not only

explore solutions to maximize performance, you will also be introduced to a T-SQL tool

that will aid you in unraveling nested code.
