Notes: Questions and Topics
Board elections for the Triangle Area SQL Server Users Group are coming up soon. We have two candidates running for re-election: Mike for the Vice President of Membership and Tracy for Vice President of Programs. If you are a TriPASS member in good standing, you can also run for one of the leadership positions; get in touch with me via Meetup if interested.
All four of us shared our thoughts on the recent PASS Summit. Overall, I think it was a successful first attempt, but it did have some rough edges. From there, I spoke a bit about the Live! 360 conference last week, where it was good to see some people for the first time in a couple of years.
NULL, Sargability, and Performance
The back half of the episode mostly dealt with performance tuning considerations, particularly when dealing with NULL. I started off hinting that I’d disagree with a good bit, but in the end, most of the advice was reasonable.
