Special Note: Date change for CACTUSS North Thursday July 17th this month only

Speaking this month for Central (7/16) and North (7/17) is Mike Byrd.

SQL Server Foreign Keys - De-mystifying the Rest of the Story

Foreign Keys have a bad rap - they cause performance issues, they inhibit some inserts, deletes and updates, etc. This may be true, but let's further explore why we even have them and how they can benefit and maybe even improve performance. This session will concentrate on many demos including the attributes associated with foreign keys. The attendee will walk away from this session with a better understanding of Foreign Key utility and their maintenance.
