Topic: Designing Stored Procedure Solutions 

In this session, you’ll learn about SQL Server stored procedures (SPs): what they are, when and why you'd use them, and how you'd go about developing a solution with one. We will address common SP myths and learn about planning for performance. Most of all, we’ll walk through examples to explore the process of solution building in SQL Server. 

Speaker: Jen McCown, Midnight DBA 

I'm a SQL Server developer and DBA of over 10 years. I've worked for FedEx, Brinks, and Microsoft, and am currently having a lovely stint at AmerisourceBergen Specialty Group. My hobbies include code and database optimization, fixing other people's scripts, and long walks with an ice cream cone. I'm the co-designer and administrator of and I write book and product reviews for Bookworm, and make training videos, articles, and blogs for MidnightDBA. My SQL blog is syndicated through, where I'm a contributor. I live in Dallas with the MVP with the pretty eyes (oh yeah, I said it) and our three so-cute-you-could-eat-em kids. Sean's right: they're growing up way smarter than us. I'm only a lowly orange belt in Kenpo Karate, but on the other hand,I hold a learner's permit to fly a single engine aircraft, so there's that. If they ever come on the intercom and say, "Is there anyone on the plane with flying experience?", then I get to go up to the cockpit.
