24 (Hours of SQL Training Delivered to Your Computer)

By Jen McCown, 2011/02/20

The Spring 24Hours of PASS: Celebrating Women in Technology will be broadcast live on the intertubez on March 15 and 16 starting at 12:00 GMT (UTC) each day! I and 23 of my awesome techie womenfolk will dazzle your SQL sesnses with two days of Business Intelligence, DBA, and Development sessions!  Be sure to register right now to reserve your spot today.

I would also like to suggest that you pick key sessions, and set up a learning day (or two!) at your office for your database and dev teams.  Your boss will flip over two free days of training from SQL Server authors, MVPs, and MCMs!

My session is a SQL Saturday favorite: T-SQL Code Sins: The Worst Things We Do to Code and Why.  It starts at 19:00 GMT on March 15

Abstract: It’s impossible to follow every best practice all the time. “Code sins” are those things we do to our code that are either so horrendous that they can’t be borne, or that have such tremendous consequences that your stored procedures wish they’d never been created. Attendees will hear about the most common code sins that make code difficult to read, support, run and extend, and practical strategies for reversing the trend.

Session Goals
