#TSQL2sDay T-SQL Tuesday 23–Early edition
Time once again for another edition of T-SQL Tuesday! Whatâ€™s that, you say? Early? Why yes, indeed. Due to the potential schedule of conflict of PASSâ€™s Summit 2011 occurring on the second Tuesday of October (the normal date for T-SQL Tuesday), Iâ€™ve gotten special permission to bump it up a week.
To participate in this monthâ€™s T-SQL Tuesday, your post must go live between midnight UTC on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 and midnight UTC on Wednesday, October 5.
Your post needs to link back to this blog, and if you use the image, anchor it to this post. Make sure you leave a comment or a trackback to this post (so I can find it later, when I write up the summary).
Topic dâ€™jour? JOINS (Iâ€™m in a fundamentals mood lately). Note that I also like creative and esoteric posts, so if you can find a way to apply SQL as a metaphorical language for community activity, Iâ€™ll read it and enjoy it. If you just want to tell me in a simple fashion the difference between a HASH and MERGE join, Iâ€™m cool with that, too.
Do me a favor, though, and please spread the word about the early date. Looking forward to reading your submissions.
