Notes: Questions and Topics
Tracy and Mala started off with a quick review of SQLbits, with Mala mentioning that it was probably the best hybrid experience she’s had with a large conference.
Parameter Sensitive Plan Optimization
After that, Mala shared her thoughts on a new feature in SQL Server 2022 that she’s been trying out: parameter sensitive plan optimization. Jared mentioned some of the challenges with it but we also talked about how some of the criticism of this feature is a bit overblown.
40 Problems with a Stored Procedure
Mark Hutchinson got us to talk about this article from Aaron Bertrand involving a code review of a nasty piece of work. Aaron found 40 separate problems, so we went through and talked about each of them. I came in expecting to disagree with 10 or so, but I think I really only disagreed with 3-4. I was actually a little surprised by that, though then we had some fun pointing out the formatting problems in Aaron’s updated procedure. Sometimes what is best in life is to be just a little petty.
