One of the most well-known personalities in the SQL Server world, Kimberly L. Tripp, is going to be our guest during all-PLSSUG online meeting. This event will happen on January 29th, 2015 and we will use Microsoft Lync or similar software to host it (more details to come).

Subject: Stored Procedure Optimization Techniques

Abstract: Kimberly will discuss stored procedure caching and the potential for performance problems due to a problem known as parameter sniffing. There are some common solutions and while they can drastically improve performance, they can also cause other problems. Sometimes a hybrid solution is needs, from this session, you’ll know the best way to write procedures so that stable requests are cached and unstable requests are not (giving you the most optimal performance without wasting resources).
