Irish SQL Server User Group Presentation

June 17, 2011 Comments off

On Tuesday this week I did a presentation on using SQLCLR to the Irish SQL Server User Group up in Dublin. It provided a simple developer based introduction on how to write plug-ins for SQL Server 2005 & 2008. The example I developed from first principles was a SHA-256 hash User Defined Type. This was a repeat of the presentation which I did to the Cork Microsoft Technology User Group back in April 2009. I updated the slide deck to mention some of the new SQLCLR features in SQL 2008 R2 but the presentation was a general developer introduction. I also raffled off a couple of copies of my SQL Server XP book as prizes for filling in the evaluation forms. A big thanks to my fellow MVP Niall Flanagan who handles the SQL Server User Group who facilitated me to do the presentation.
