Session 2 - SQL Server Data Types - why should we care?
It does not metter if you are using the SQL Server only for simple queries, you are the programmer, data warehouse developer, data scientist or the DBA you are using many different data types. Choosing the wrong data type or ignoring them can cause the performance issues or even provide the incorrect results. See what can happen and why you should start to care about the type of your data.
