    Lightning Round Presenter: John Wells, Lamar Advertising 
    Topic: Implicit Conversions "Performance Killer"
    Summary: Implicit conversions are a performance killer that you may not 
    even realize you have. The good news is they are easily corrected.
    In this quick presentation, we will go over why they happen and 
    and how to prevent them.
    Bio: Originally from Southern California, I relocated to the state I grew up visiting and enjoy the easier life here.I'm a DBA at Lamar Advertising for the last 10 months after 2 years with an advertising company in Shreveport.Relocating to Louisiana 3 years ago was for a new beginning and something different. I enjoy everything database and some call me "Mr. SQL Saturday".

    Bio:
    Constantine Kokkinos is a technophile, DBA, and all around nice guy. He spends the bulk of his time either performance tuning databases or using PowerShell to automate anything he can.
