SQLMidlands & SQLLunch

Many thanks to all those that turned out to see my presentation on Thursday (16th of Feb) of “Cursors are Evil” at SQLMidlands.  The scripts i used are here :


You will need the AdventureWorks2008r2 release to run these, feel free to mail me (dave.ballantyne@live.co.uk) with any questions.  They are based upon a series of articles I wrote for SQLServerCentral which can be found here and here.

Also I am starting ,or at least having an attempt at, a new user group in London.  This is SQLLunch, meeting downstairs at The Golden Fleece , EC4N 1SP which is 2 minutes from Bank Tube , we will have a twice monthly meeting (2nd and 4th Tuesdays) for an ‘All Stuff, No Fluff’ event.  Put plainly, a quick hello followed by a 45 minute presentation , which will ,optimistically, have you there and back to your desk within a lunch hour.

Registrations for the first series of dates are at sqlserverfaq.com

If you would like to speak, then please get in touch.

Hope to see you there.
