Boise SQL Server User Group

What we're about

<use xlink:href="#icon-show--small" xmlns:xlink="">Public Group

The Boise SQL Server Users Group is for anyone with an interest in learning about SQL Server and connecting with SQL Server professionals and organizations from the Treasure Valley. We discuss topics from novice to advanced with the goal of educating our members about the technical and related capabilities of SQL Server and how they can be leveraged to for improvement and professional growth. Most of our meetings take place at the Microsoft offices in downtown Boise, with occasional meetings at some of our sponsor locations. We meet on the second Tuesday of every month except December from 4:30-6:00 pm.

Grant Carter will be presenting on the query store, that is now part of SQL 2016/2017 and Azure SQL Database.   You will learn how to use the query store to identify queries that are regressing and view execution plans captured, and how to “fix” bad plans that have regressed.
