SQL Saturday #262 : Boston

Today I gave my T-SQL : Bad Habits & Best Practices session at SQL Saturday #262 at Microsoft in Cambridge. Fun event with a lot of friendly faces. A few mishaps along the way:

  • had to wake up at 5:00 AM to take the only sensible commuter rail option to get me there on time;
  • spilled, then proceeded to smear, bagel droppings all over my pants on said train;
  • blew up the projector (literally!) pressing F5 during one of my demos; had to proceed with just hand-waving and a little interpretive dance for good measure.

Great audience; took technical difficulties in both my and Kevin's sessions in stride. And thanks to all the organizers, well-run event - and of course projector crankiness has nothing to do with them. :-)

Last but not least, my slides and sample code can be downloaded below. Please let me know if you have any questions!
