Let’s have some fun!  Using a game show style presentation, Kevin
will test your knowledge of IT pop culture, IT history, computers, database
technology, and – of course – SQL Server. 
Winners get prizes!

For IT professionals, not knowing how
the industry got started is much like an automobile professional who doesn't 
know where cars came from.  In addition,
the Internet is full of recommendations that were written a long time ago which
no longer apply to current versions of the infrastructure.  Consequently, a lot of sincere developers and
administrators are following protocols that can hurt, not help performance,
reliability, and maintainability of their applications. 

This SQL Trivia bowl may contain
questions about:

o   The origins and history of computing
and data processing

o   SQL Server Setup, Memory, IO, and CPU

o   Transact-SQL Programming

o   Database Design

o   Business Intelligence

So let’s have some fun clearing out the
cobwebs of old recommendations and faulty assumptions.  Learn about SQL Server because it’s not just
trivia, it’s your job!
