Oct 2014 ~ Basic Database Programming ~ John Miner

I am thrilled about presenting to the Southern New England SQL Server User Group (SNESSUG) on October 8, 2014.

I always love the home team advantage by knowing the audience very well. It makes for a relaxing environment to teach and attendees to learn.

Here is the gritty details of the presentation that I will be exploring during the 60 minute talk.

You just found out that a client needs a SQL database to be designed from scratch. However, you existing DBA has given two week notice. This presentation is meant for the Accidental DBA that has little to no experience with creating Transaction SQL objects. After this presentation, will be ready to meet that clients need.

This presentation will review the following topics to get you ready to code.
