Featured Presentation:

SQL Query Store

Juliana Austin, Senior Business Intelligence Analyst Vaya Health

SQL Query Store became available in SQL 2016 and has changed the way we can performance tune and troubleshoot within SQL server. Come see a presentation and demo on how to set up Query Store, how to use the interface to quickly find plan changes, and track problem queries for future evaluation.

About Juliana:
Juliana Austin has worked in the IT industry as a developer, analyst, or DBA for over 20 years. She gets most excited to come to work when performance tuning is on the agenda, but a regular day using SSMS, SSRS, dbatools, or SSIS is pretty darn good. Outside of SQL enjoyment, she enjoys traveling and practicing on her upright bass with her hillbilly friends.
