Unexplored Features of SQL Server

Every new version of SQL Server adds new features, some of these features are rarely highlighted. Join me for this practical session which focuses on some of the less-popular but useful features of SQL Server.
We will start with exploring the hierarchyid, geometry and geography data types of SQL Server. Next, we will look at the Temp tables and teach you how to cache Temp tables for better performance. We will cover sparse, rowversion columns and finish the session off by showing you how to remove ORM from web applications by utilizing JSON functions in SQL Server.
