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.
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.
