Data Mining Algorithms in SQL Server, Excel, R and Azure ML – by Dejan Sarka
Data mining as the most advanced data analysis technique is gaining popularity. With modern data mining engines, products and packages, like SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS), Excel, R, and Azure ML, data mining has become a black box. It is possible to use data mining without knowing how it works.
Mastering Execution Plan Analysis – by Paul White
Expert-level query tuning and performance analysis requires a deep understanding of both the query optimizer and the execution plans it produces.
This full-day workshop begins by covering the design and operation of the SQL Server Query Optimizer in depth. Starting with a clear overview of the basics, the session progresses rapidly to look at the detailed and often subtle behaviours that have real impacts on almost every query you write.
The second part of the workshop starts with an introduction to the Query Execution Engine, looks at query plan operators in detail, and covers the main things you need to check for in execution plans. We then move on to further develop the deep technical knowledge and practical skills you will need to start analyzing execution plans to an expert level.
