  • Very nice intro to stored procs... outstanding video, too! Great job, Brian.

    Is it "Smart TV" that allowed you to create such a beautiful performance? If not, what did you use because with the "expanding red circle" attentention getter, the yellow highlighter, and the ability to quick pan and zoom, I think that's one hell of a great product and, if my meager budget allows it, I wouldn't mind buying a copy!

    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.
    "Change is inevitable... change for the better is not".

  • I use a combination of a tool called Zoomit (free from SysInternals.com) to zoom in and out. Camtasia does all the recording with the highlighted cricle and click actions.

  • Good item for starters, Brian. My only thought is you should have explained that you can submit values in variable order without specifying the names and that you can submit them in any order as long as you specify the variable name. And you might have want to go ahead and demonstrate default values and demonstrate the difference in what happens with and without them.

  • Great video. I wish I would have seen something this simple years ago when I had to start writing and maintaining SPs. Something interesting I did not know is that you can execute the SP without EXEC (or EXECUTE); although I'll keep using EXEC since it gives that warm fuzzy feeling that I'm actually doing something.

  • Wonderful video, excellent stuff....

    Yeah, Zoomit is a cool little tool. Very lightweight and very easy to use.

  • The tool used to make the video is cool. Also, great learning stuff for the beginners.

  • Great Video...well explained

  • Very great video as I am very green with SQL. I was able to recreate using my database, however I am unable to use the = to get items that were entered on a specific date. Does this only work using the > or < symbols.
