18:30 - 19:30 - Quick SQL Tips - Ike Ellis
This is a presentation for the YouTube generation. Come discover a series of 20 SQL Tips relating to a wide variety of topics including SQL Server Reporting Services, Integration Services, performance tuning, architecture, indexing, management, and tooling. Each tip is about 3 - 5 minutes long and each one comes with a demo. If you know a tip already, just wait it out for the next. I promise you'll learn something.

Bridgewater House is just around the corner from Oxford Road train station on Whitworth Street next door to the Palace Theatre. There is an NCP next door and on street parking. We are meeting on the 5th floor. The Swinton reception desk closes at 5.30 so people should go to the main reception (the one you see when coming in the building) then take the lift (left or right) to the 5th floor. You can go through double doors but will need a pass to get further. We will monitor arrivals until the start of the meeting, late arrivals can ring Chris on 07817690859
