5-14-15: Common SQL Server Mistakes

Making mistakes is natural, but learning from them and avoiding them in future takes effort. There's no substitute for experience or the shared wisdom of others to help you learn what mistakes to avoid. In this session, Tim will share with you a ton of what he's learned over the years from working and consulting at multiple Fortune-level companies.

You'll hear about real-world environments he has worked on where there was a high impact from administrators making mistakes in how SQL Server was configured and administered. You'll learn many proven and accepted best practices for installing, configuring and supporting SQL Server to help your environment run as smoothly as possible and you'll leave with a checklist of items to take home to make sure your SQL Server environment is configured properly.
