Fundamentals of Designing a Data Warehouse by Melissa Coates

In this session we will review sensible techniques for developing a data warehousing environment which is relevant, agile, and extensible. We will cover practical dimensional modeling fundamentals and design patterns, along with when to use techniques such as partitioning or clustered columnstore indexes in SQL Server. We'll also review tips for using a database project in SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) effectively. The session will conclude with tips for planning the future growth of your data warehouse.

SQLCmd Mode - The T-SQL Easy Button by Robert L. Davis

Ever find yourself writing a T-SQL script and wishing you could do a relatively simple task that T-SQL just doesn't support? Like running a script and passing in parameters at run-time? Or using a variable across multiple batches? Or run a script across multiple instances? SQLCmd mode in SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) is the answer to these problems and more. Unfortunately most people don't even know about these capabilities. It's the T-SQL easy button that almost nobody uses!
