Thank you and good to "see" you again. Is Roy going to let you go to PASS with him this year?

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

He calls himself an “Accidental DBA.” His title at DiscoverReady is Lead Application DBA and Data Architect. He’s known as a writer for SQLServerCentral.com whose articles are often read by tens of thousands. He is the lead advocate for the Anti-RBAR (Row by Agonizing Row) Alliance. He’s also a pool player, beer drinker, magnet-buff, quilter, gardener, motorcyclist, and partner to his life-long love, Debbie. But perhaps most of all, he’s a natural-born helper of others.


I find it amusing that we have this alliance... at some point Jeff, you need to create www.anti-rbar.com or something so that we can all actually sign up for it. Smile

Congratulations, Jeff.

You have been deserving of an award like this for years. As a long-time SSC member and regular tally table user (and calendar table!), I thank you for everything you have given to this community, not only with your technical expertise, but your positive and caring attitude.

Hopefully, there is much more to come for you.

Mike

Heh... I'm just happy that people have really started to embrace the thought process of what RBAR is and how to fight it but you might have something there. Let me think about it. Thanks, Mark.

I have to admit, I was pretty nervous about the interview and how it might come out. Thank you for the feedback and the kind words, Mike.
