SQL PASS Conference

I'm at the SQL PASS conference in Wellington this weekend and so far it's been very interesting. The Key Note talk was definitely different with an Iron DBA competition - o for awesome - yeah, I know... guess you have to be here for that one to make any sense.

Have just watched a very useful DMV talk by Dr Greg Low, has made me think of a t-shirt slogan, sp_who is toast! Too geeky? Maybe I'll just stick with something slightly less geeky, current fave t-shirt slogan is "Come to the dark side, we have cookies."

This afternoon I'm presenting on coding standards, the slides are minimal but they're attached on the right. I've also put together a word document of coding standards for T-SQL, these aren't 2008-i-fied yet but I'm working on that. Should still be useful though.
