Speaker: Vern Rabe
Vern will be presenting The Significance of Choosing the Right Data Types. The description of the presentation is the following:
It’s an all too common occurrence to have table columns or variables that have been assigned less than ideal data types. My goal in this presentation is to show you the importance of choosing the proper data type; show you some guidelines in determining what an appropriate data type would be; and once chosen, give you some tools for its usage and management. I will demonstrate several performance and accuracy issues, along with their possible solutions, caused by either the assignment of inappropriate data types or improper usage of them. In addition I will cover several data type related functions, and point out caveats in their usage. I expect even advanced T-SQL developers and DBAs to walk away with a useful nugget or two.
