  • Saving a Few Lines of Code by Performing Multiple Operations in a Single Command

  • Speaking this weekend at SQL Saturday 277 - Richmond

      One of my favorite locations to speak or attend is when Richmond has a SQL Saturday. (though if you are an organizer of another SQL Saturday's I have submitted to, note that I said ''one of my favorites'' :)). This will be the third time I go to Richmond. I like it for several reasons:   The people - I have coworkers coming up ...
