Mladen Prajdić is a Data Platform MVP from Slovenia. He's been profesionally programming for over 20 years, developing different types of applications in .Net (C#) and SQL Server, ranging from standard line-of-business, image-processing applications to high performace and IoT applications. He's a regular speaker at various conferences and usergroup meetings, really likes to optimize slow SQL statements, analyze performance, and find unconventional solutions to difficult SQL Server problems. In his free time, he also develops a very popular add-in for SSMS, called the SSMS Tools Pack (www.ssmstoolspack.com).
Mladen Prajdić has submitted 2 sessions for SQLBits 2020, although the agenda hasn't been chosen yet. See all submitted sessions.

Pending Sessions

How to increase security by using symmetric and asymmetric server encryption, client side Always Encrypted, secure SSL/TLS channels and Transparent Data Encryption for data at rest.
SQL Server 2019 added a feature to Always Encrypted called Secure Enclaves, which enables us to easily search through encrypted data. We'll look at how to do it.

Sessions

Previous Sessions

A look into the world of database testing, how to go about it, why do we really need it and how to work well with your peers and managers for greater project success.
We'll focus on the awesome new SQL Server 2012 stuff that will make your T-SQL development a breeze. We'll look at new stuff like OFFSET, WINDOWING FUNCTIONS, SEQUENCES, ERROR HANDLING, FORMAT & CONVERT functions and METADATA DISCOVERY.
This session will give you insight into both of the current tracing technologies in SQL Server. Old SQL Trace has served us well but new times call for new technology. The new Extended Events are a new lightweight tracing mechanism built into SQLOS.
Because there are always at least two sides of the performance coin, in this session aimed at .Net and SQL developers, we'll dive into the workings of the .Net SqlClient and give you insight into way more than just SqlCommand.ExecuteReader()
In this session we'll take two queries, a read and a write one, and look at the whole trip from the client through the server and back to the client. On this journey we'll try to identify where things might go wrong.
Learn about the methodology to increase security related development practices, backed by real world examples. Including securely accessing a database, properly encrypting data, using SSL/TLS, etc
