Are You There, DBA? It’s Me, The App Developer

Are you a frustrated DBA trying to improve performance on an application you
didn’t write? Or perhaps you’re an application developer struggling to
understand why your queries run slowly on someone else’s database? This talk
will cover practical techniques to help developers and DBAs work together
efficiently to troubleshoot poorly performing applications.

Beginner / Intermediate software developers and DBAs will learn: when you need
the actual query execution plan (and how to get it), why queries executed from
SSMS perform differently than they do in the application, and how you can
improve an application to make database troubleshooting easier. When the DBA
and Developer join forces, there’s no problem they can’t solve!
