SQL Server stored procedures are used by companies large and small to fetch intelligent rowsets, perform updates, manage data and referential integrity, enforce business rules, and protect the underlying data. These server-side blocks of T-SQL code can improve performance if they're written and executed correctly. Otherwise, they make a developer's (or DBA's) life miserable. The problem is, most developers do not fully understand how SQL Server compiles, caches, and reuses the query plan. This session focuses on a number of "best-practices" used to optimize developer and code performance when stored procedures are part of your application's design.
