XML in SQL Server, Why bother? The OttawaSQL.Net Talk

by Jean-Rene Roy 20. May 2010 22:50

Last week I was giving sessions about XML. I did it before at the Ottawa IT Day and the Toronto Code Camp. But this time I enhance it with some code simple that output XML that I was using back in year 2000. This example was interesting because 2000 was when this buzz work hit all developer like a brick. Now, to know what this is all about you need to be there. The good news is that all the code from this demo fest can be downloaded right here.  If you have questions call or email me

Biggest Code Camp in Canada!

by Jean-Rene Roy 5. May 2010 02:27

Christ Dufour and is volunteers team (Over 30 volunteers) did a fantastic job at the www.TorontoCodeCamp.Net. Over 600 attendees, 39 sessions presented in a single day.  According to Chris all sessions have been well received. I was doing 2 sessions “What is MS Sync Framework?” and “XML in SQL Server, Why bother?”.   My sessions offend have a “?” in the tile because it’s questions that I use to have.  The presentation normally brings the DBA or Developer to a general knowledge of the subject.  Was doing the “XML in SQL Server” talk for the second time and I field it is getting just right.  I am doing this session next week at the OttawaSQL.net. I suggest you come to know all you need to know about XML and SQL Server.  Here a picture of me at the Toronto Code Camp.
