Here are resources to presentations that I have given.
This session will explore the new JSON functionality introduced in SQL Server 2016. We will use T-SQL examples to learn how these functions can be used to parse, create, and modify JSON data. More importantly, we will discuss how to optimize performance when using these functions.
By the end of this session DBAs and developers will know how to efficiently work with JSON in SQL Server 2016.
JSON has become the standard format for transmitting serialized data in today's websites, APIs, and applications. With SQL Server 2016, Microsoft has made it easy to work with JSON strings in T-SQL. This session is an introduction to the new JSON functions added in SQL Server 2016. We will use T-SQL query examples to learn how these new functions can be used to parse, create, and modify JSON data. We will also discuss when it's appropriate to store JSON in databases as well as how to optimize performance when using these new functions. By the end of this presentation DBAs and developers will know how to efficiently work with JSON data in SQL Server 2016.
SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is an easy-to-use tool for automating reports and creating highly visual dashboards. Although SSRS is easy to learn there are many tips and tricks that can improve your report building experience, not to mention make your reports run blazing fast!
This rapid-fire session goes over my learnings from the past six years of developing high performance SSRS reports, including topics like multivalue parameter efficiencies, how to best utilize subreports, and performing SQL CRUD operations with SSRS.
Each rapid-fire topic includes sample data and an SSRS reporting example that users will be able to try out for
