May 13: Kevin Goff on T-SQL for Application Developers ... plus dinner

Our next meeting will be next Tuesday, May 13. We’ll be providing dinner, so come as early as 6:30 to eat with us. Please email if you’ll be eating, so we buy enough.

Our speaker this month is Kevin Goff:

Kevin S. Goff ( has been a Microsoft MVP since 2005.   He is a Database architect/developer/speaker/author and has been writing magazine articles and books for 10 years.  He speaks regularly at  community events in the Mid-Atlantic region, and is a regular speaker for the SQL Live!360 commercial conference brand

The topic is “T-SQL for Application Developers: attendees choose.”

That's right, attendees choose! I'll show 25 possible topics on the screen, and the attendees vote at the beginning on which topics I'll cover.

Everything from isolation levels to ranking...everything from GUIDs to table-valued functions....everything from querying temporal data to instances where subqueries are necessary....everything from update triggers to reading execution plans...everything from cumulative totals to uses for UNPIVOT....and more!

You'll walk away with over 25 code samples, even though we'll only cover a portion of them in the presentation. This has always been a very popular session.
