T-SQL Tuesday #60 – Something New Learned

SQL TuesdayLights go on, it’s another game day, grabbed my bat and headed for the plate only this time we are going to do this SQL style and the game is T-SQL Tuesday. That’s right, head coach Adam Machanic has decided to put me in the game and graciously allowed me to host this month.

Honestly, it couldn’t have come at a better time; I’m at PASS Summit 2014 and it ties nicely into the party I’d like to host. Over the course of the last several weeks and months I’ve noticed a lot of SQL Saturday sessions ongoing (what was it a few weeks ago there was over 5 in one day all over the country?) Coupled with all the learning going on and 5k of my closest friends at one place a question popped in my mind during my travels.

Why do we come to events, webinars, sessions, networking? The basic fundamental therein is to learn; community. With that said here is this month’s theme. You have to discuss one thing, few things, or many things on something new you’ve learned recently. Could be from a webinar, event, conference, colleague – the idea is for seasoned vets to new beginners to name at least one thing; in doing so it might just help one of your fellow SQL friends within the community.

So grab a bat join this SQL team and let’s hit grand slam after grand slam. I want to have the biggest turnout T-SQL Tuesday has ever had so spread the word – GAME TIME

What is T-SQL Tuesday?

T-SQL Tuesday is a monthly block party for bloggers started by the renowned Adam Machanic (B|T). If you’d like to be a host one month reach out to Adam. It’ a good way to get involved within the community.


There are a few rules and regulations that you should follow while attending this party so that nobody feels left out or mistreated.

  1. Your post must go live between 00:00:00 GMT on Tuesday the 11th of November and 00:00:00 GMT on Wednesday the 12th.
  2. Your post has to link back to the hosting blog post, and the link must be anchored from the T-SQL Tuesday LOGO (found above) which must also appear at the top of the post.
  3. Trackbacks should work. However, it is safer to drop me a comment, tweet about your post and include my Twitter handle (@Yatessql) and the #tsql2sday hashtag.
