North Texas SQL Server User group

I live, work and play in the DFW area and used to be a regular attendee at the local user group monthly meeting. I was even a board member. The topics became increasingly over my head or out of my area of daily need, so I started slacking and eventually quit going altogether.

No more!

Tonight I start the first of 5 or 6 months of free Power Shell beginner classes that happen before the SSUG meeting starts, taught by a local expert. I don't even know what Power Shell is...some sort of scripting language is all I gather.

In addition, my co-worker Trevor Barkhouse is the presenter this evening. He will cover "Refactoring T-SQL Code for Better Performance". I've seen him do this here in the office to help a couple of our problem customers resolve nagging issues that were frustrating them.

Any chance that refactoring session will be recorded? Maybe put online somewhere in at least powerpoint form.

I think it would be useful with some of my devs.

Hi Jason...no idea, but you may be able to contact Trevor directly through the ntssug website, or post on the listserv. I won't see him at work until Monday and by then I'll have forgotten to ask
