Intro to SQL Server for data scientists

An introduction to SQL Server for data scientists - Gavin Payne

A little bit of knowledge about how SQL Server works can go a long way towards making large data engineering queries run faster. Whether you use SQL Server as a data source or as a R or Python query processing platform, knowing how it processes queries, manages memory and reads from disk is key to making it work harder and faster.

This session introduces and demonstrates how SQL Server:

- operates internally
- performs select queries
- uses indexes to make queries run faster
- executes machine learning code to make operational predictions

It then introduces some query tuning techniques to help heavyweight analytics queries run faster.
