  • Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Cloud BI

    Join us as we explore how to use Microsoft's new MPP (Massively Parallel Processing) technology. We'll deep dive into why we would use it over SQL Server, the benefits, the problems, and give real world examples on how a .Net developer & business owner (me) learned how to create a high performance scalable solution. We'll cover things like partitioning, columnstore indexes, CTAS, statistics, and the all important partition swapping.
