Our presentation will be "Up Your Game With OUTPUT"
There are some classic database programming tasks that rely on answering
the question "What did I just change?" Prior to SQL Server 2005, we had to
use functions like SCOPE_IDENTITY() and some extra tricks for handling
multiple rows. Some people even had to resort to triggers. Yikes!! This
session focuses on the practical use cases for the T-SQL OUTPUT clause.
More importantly, you will find out how you can ditch the tricks of the
past for a simpler solution that will help keep you sane.
Phil Helmer has been working with relational databases for the last 10
years, the last half of that with SQL Server. He is particularly involved
with database design/development as well as modifying databases to scale.
He is currently a Database Engineer in San Diego for the cloud storage firm
Nirvanix, Inc. Phil also has a degree in Management Information Systems
from the University of New Orleans.
Please join us for pizza and networking starting at 6:00 followed by our
