Really nice article!

I live in Japan so it's quite common to use nvarchar. I never stopped to think of what it implied regarding performances ...

In fact, I had performance issues for very simple queries on my GUIs and I put that on .net core being new and still in development so I switched to NodeJS (not the only factor though).
I always wondered why and didn't have time to look too much into it but now that I see this article, I'm pretty sure the nvarchar/varchar conversion was the reason!
