TGI SQL Friday: Weekly Roundup 23rd September

Its been another Learning Tree week for me this week and a very interesting one at that. I'm on the Learning Tree IAT...IAT stands for Instructor Advisory Team, the team consists of Learning Tree instructors and Learning Tree senior management  and its purpose is to come up with ideas and suggestions to improve how Learning Tree does things and how it does business. A number of great ideas have come out of this so far and the meeting on Monday was also a very productive meeting with further ideas shared, watch this space to see as these ideas get implemented.

I have also been teaching an onsite for a client in Warwick, a rather pleasant part of the world. I was teaching the 534 Developing SQL Queries for SQL Server

534 Developing SQL Queries
