Apr 9th: Rob Volk on Revenge: The SQL!

 

Have you been wronged, cheated, lied to, lied about, or deceived by a coworker? Feel like your DBA position offers no opportunity for revenge? WRONG! This session is a light-hearted exploration of some delightfully mischievous SQL design patterns that will annoy, aggravate, and antagonize anyone who has to work with them...even though they deserved it! Learn how to create tables with no names, columns with duplicate names, and write perfectly valid yet utterly nonsensical SQL. You may never get to use these techniques…but you'll ache for the chance!

      Sounds like real fun, but I'm in St. Mellons and am doubful that I would be able to make it in time.

      The session promises to be really good - we did a test today to make sure all the computers worked and Rob is very funny, you'll see some of it from his slides which I'll post after the event
