Sat, Dec 17 2016 21:00 (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)



Database indexes can drastically improve the performance of queries. They can seem like magic if you don’t understand how they work. You may have heard the terms clustered, nonclustered, or heap and are not quite sure what those terms mean. In this session, you will learn what indexes are and why the right indexes make such a big difference.
