  • T-SQL Tuesday #028: Whaddya Mean, “Not Your Job?”

    This T-SQL Tuesday, hosted by Argenis Fernandez (Blog|Twitter) is devoted to the question, “Are you a Jack-of-all-Trades? Or a specialist?” This question really hits home for me, on a number of levels. (Aside: I have huge respect for Argenis – he’s smart, funny, no-nonsense, very accomplished. If you don’t follow him, do.) If you have read ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #26 : Second Chances

    This month's T-SQL Tuesday is being hosted by Dave Howard (@DaveH0ward), and the topic is ''Second Chances.'' What he's letting us do is look back at all the previous T-SQL Tuesdays and pick a topic that we missed or maybe thought we needed another crack at. I chose a recent topic that I missed due to travel, ''Data Presentation,'' hosted by ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #25 Followup - Just in Time for the Holidays

    T-SQL Tuesday #25 fell on the same day I brought my mother home from a 3-day emergency trip to the hospital. She's much better, now, but it was a bit crazy there for a little bit. Thanks for everyone's best wishes. Rob Farley kicked off the official start of the event with a post titled A T-SQL Tip: Working calculations. He showed us how to use ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #025 - Invitation to Share Your Tricks

    It doesn't seem that long ago that having cool little tidbits of information about SQL Server made a huge difference in how effective you could be. Well, that's still true, but let me give you an example. SELECT name FROM sysobjects WHERE sysstat & 4 > 0 In the early days of SQL Server, this was the way to pull a list of the names of all ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #24 : Dude, where's the rest of my procedure?

    This month's T-SQL Tuesday is being hosted by Brad Schulz (blog) and the topic is one that should attract a lot of submissions: Procedures and Functions. Last week, I talked about the case against INFORMATION_SCHEMA views - I provided several examples where I feel the INFORMATION_SCHEMA views fall short of the catalog views, and expressed my ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday 24: Ode to Composable Code

    I love the T-SQL Tuesday tradition, started by Adam Machanic and hosted this month by Brad Shulz. I am a little pressed for time this month, so today’s post is a short ode to how I love saving time with Composable Code in SQL. Composability is one of the very best features of SQL, but sometimes gets picked on due to both real and imaginary ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #23 : Well, that's a kick in the JOIN...

    This month's T-SQL Tuesday is a week early due to the upcoming PASS Summit. It is being hosted by Stuart Ainsworth (blog | @codegumbo) and the topic is a general one: JOINs. I had an idea for a very brief post showing the typical join operations we use to solve common queries, and a more interesting but less common way we can solve the ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #21 : Crap Code

    Yes, Adam is right: we've all written crap code (the topic of this month's T-SQL Tuesday Wednesday. Usually we have an excuse: tight deadline, short shelf life of the code, or didn't know any better. I'm sure if I perused my career codebase I'd find tons and tons of examples that I'd write differently today, because back then it fell under ...

  • [T-SQL Tuesday] Some code is born crap, some code achieves crapness and some code has crapness thrust upon it!

    I recently returned to a client at which I last worked back in 2006 and, as you might imagine, that gives me ample material for a blog post dedicated to Crap Code; conveniently the subject of the latest T-SQL Tuesday. I first worked for this client back in 2004 and that is significant because back then we were writing code on SQL Server 2000. Ah, ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #20 : T-SQL Best Practices

    T-SQL Tuesday, the invention of Adam Machanic (@AdamMachanic), is what he calls a recurring, revolving blog party. Each month, a new host picks a topic, invites bloggers of all levels to join in, and then after all the submissions are in, writes a summary of all of the entries. This encourages people to participate in the community more ...
