Louisville SQL Server and Power BI User Group



Welcome to the Louisville SQL Server Users Group! We represent the SQL Server community in Louisville, the surrounding metropolitan area, and throughout most of Kentucky. As a technical users group, we focus on monthly meetings, but also provide networking, learning opportunities, speaking opportunities, training, and collaboration for SQL Server professionals throughout the Ohio Valley area. Our monthly meetings occur on the second Thursday of each month, either at lunchtime in the downtown Louisville area or in the evening outside downtown. This alternating approach to meeting times and locations allows us to support as many of our users as possible and provides different venue and time options for our meetings and our attendees. We also partner with various volunteer groups to bring special events to the area, such as SQL Saturdays. Those events typically draw large crowds of SQL Server professionals from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, and beyond!

Understanding SQL Server Statistics

Sreeni Julakanti, Database Architect Humana

This session will introduce you to SQL Server statistics, including how to create, manage, troubleshoot and more! Statistics are a key part of getting solid and repeatable performance and are easily just as important as having indexes. SQL Server statistics provide cardinality estimations and selectivity of data. We’ll also look at how SQL Server creates statistics objects automatically to enable the Query Optimizer to make the right plan choices based on estimated costs.
