Data Types Word Search

Kenneth Fisher, 2018-10-05 (first published: 2018-09-26)

Just for fun here is a word search with all of the data types available in SQL Server. Well, two exceptions. No datetime2 because there are no numbers in the word search, and sql_variant I had to remove the underscore. Last but not least, if it helps, there are 33 of them. See if you can find them all without looking any up. If you do need the list here it is. Or you can always query sys.types.

Edit: I have to admit I didn’t save a solution for this. I wasn’t able to find the option in the application I used to create it. It also appears that the application may not have included all of the data types. I was able to find 21 with the following missing:

BIGINT, DATE, DECIMAL, GEOGRAPHY, GEOMETRY, IMAGE, NTEXT, NUMERIC, REAL, SMALLDATETIME, SYSNAME, UNIQUEIDENTIFIER

If you happen to find one of them let me know. I’ll get a key posted next week with whatever I’ve been able to find.

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
