In this single video, Rob Sullivan is tasked with perf-tuning an ASP.NET MVC 3 web application (using EF) so it can handle a StackOverflow data dump. Over 4 million rows of data in the Posts table alone! The application is one that any web developer might build - with holes in it that any developer might fall into. The site is timing out, we're down - we need some help from an amazing DBA!
Rob is a bona fide Alpha Nerd. He is the Senior Data Magistrate for the government in the Prism division where he specializes in data collection and data profiling.
When he isn’t lording over AppDevs and Architects, he can be found truncating vast amounts of pizza, ETLing burritos and breaking down the execution plans of video games.
