This month we have Microsoft MVP Andy Yun speaking to us. His talk will be focusing on making T-SQL code leaner and meaner, with his favorite beginner and intermediate-level tips and tricks.

Lunch is on us...Or rather, on GDH Consulting!  Just be sure to RSVP using the link, so we can buy enough food for everyone, without waste.

Note that this month's date is on Friday, instead of Wednesday, due to higher-than-expected demand for the facilities by Microsoft.

Featured Presentation:

T-SQL Tips & Tricks to Make Your Life Easier!

Andy Yun, Senior Solutions Engineer SentryOne

Do you spend your days slinging T-SQL code? Want to improve your T-SQL game? If you answered yes, then this session is for you. This demo-intensive session will showcase a collection of my favorite beginner and intermediate level tips and tricks. We will explore how to identify and fix some common T-SQL anti-patterns, my favorite SSMS productivity tricks, and clever solutions to some common but not easily-coded challenges. This session targets both developers and DBAs; the only prerequisites are the desire to write better T-SQL code and aim of living an easier life!
