Featured Presentation:

TSQL User Defined Functions – Taboo or not?

Steve Stedman, Founder / Owner Stedman Solutions, LLC

Track: Database Development Level: Intermediate For years user defined functions (UDFs) have been the nemesis of the DBA focused on performance, but they have been loved by developers due to their ability to help with code re-usability and abstraction of business rules. SQL Server 2019 introduces techniques that help eliminate some of the performance issues related to UDFs. Learn how and in what cases scalar UDF In-lining can improve your performance reducing the historic performance problems with UDFs. We will explore how in-lining improves performance, along with what you can do and what prevents in-lining of UDFs.
