Featured Presentation #1: Table Diaspora - A Tale from the Trenches by Ben Thul

Have you ever needed to migrate a table from one database to another with zero downtime? Or perhaps needed to do an operation that would normally require an aggressive/long-duration lock? What if you needed to do the same thing to dozens of tables‽

You'll never believe it - this happened to me! In this session, I'll outline how I did it. You'll learn about triggers, computed columns, module signing, SSIS, and just enough BIML to be dangerous.

Featured Presentation #2: HierarchyID by Ben Thul

Employee/manager relationships, family trees, and the like are all hierarchical data. In this session, we'll look at a common way to represent such relationships, common methods of querying them, and how we can leverage the hierarchyid datatype to make queries go a lot easier and faster!
