SQL Trail 2021 In-Person Q&A

Live Podcast! We decided it was time to try and get together in person and reconnect. As we did, we pulled out the microphone and started recording. As a result, we break the single topic mode this week and opened it up for a Q&A session. We touch on database monitoring, memory grants, what we miss about being in an office, and even SharePoint (Gasp!).

3 Takeaways

  1. Power BI still doesn’t have good version control.
  2. There are a couple of considerations tracking down large memory grants.
  3. It’s ok to miss going into the office.

Somebody said that they had to put makeup on and do their hair to come out today, and that’s not a normal thing. If you’ve been working from home, what do you miss about getting together with other technologists?
