PASS Database Adminstration SIG Live Meeting Event: February 27th at 12pm EST

PASS hosts several SIGs (Special Interest Groups) in the area of Database Administration, Business Intelligence, Application Development and Women in Technology.

The PASS Database Adminstration SIG is offering a live meeting event featuring TJay Belt. TJay will give a talk about SQL Server Logical Query Processing

Abstract: The first noticeable aspect of SQL that is different from other programming languages is the order in which the code is processed. In most programming languages, the code is processed in the order in which it is written. In SQL, the first clause that is processed is the FROM clause, while the SELECT clause, which appears first, is processed almost last. The presentation will be a brief description of the different logical steps applied in both SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005. You’ll also see a demonstration of SQL code written by Itzik Ben-Gan from his book Inside Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 T-SQL Querying.
