You’re confident writing queries to get the data you want, and you’ve been doing it for a couple of years. You took an intro course when you first got started, and sure, you learned select/from/where/group-by – but how do you make your queries go faster?

In this one-day course, you’ll learn:

  • How sp_BlitzCache shows you which queries to focus on, and what parameters to use with sp_BlitzCache to guarantee the best bang for the buck on your own SQL Server
  • How to read an execution plan to find the problems in a query
  • What parts of estimated, cached, and actual plans are lying to you
  • How to identify common anti-patterns in queries and plans, and fix ’em fast

This course is 100% demos: the only slides are the introductions at the start of the day, and the recap at the end of the day. The rest of the time, we’ll be working in SQL Server Management Studio. Roll up your sleeves and join me!


This is an online class – I (Brent) host it in GoToWebinar, live with me on webcam, taking questions as we go through the material together. Audio can come through either your computer audio, or by dialing into a US phone number – headset recommended either way.

You can watch again later with Instant Replay – for one year after your live class, you can start watching the recordings, and keep watching for a year. Brush up on stuff you missed or revisit your favorite topics. It’s the best of both worlds: live training with me, plus reminders. (Or, you can just buy the Instant Replay access – save money, and start watching your recordings immediately, streaming them in your browser for a year.)

    Learned a lot and can’t wait to review the recorded class after reviewing a few things in my production environment. There were a few concepts I need to take a planned approach to. For those thinking about this class, do it and see how you can make your database faster. Mine is, already.
