Isn’t it amazing how well applications would scale with zero concurrent users? Fortunately for our careers, we often deal with the opposite problem: Lots of users, all working with the same data at the same time. This session starts with a discussion of the types of concurrency issues you might encounter, and then moves on to an analysis of techniques for solving the problems that concurrency brings to the table. We will look at both the tools SQL Server provides natively, as well as database and application design strategies that can help to maximize the user experience in highly concurrent applications.
