SQL University: Spring 2011

The new SQL University Logo

Welcome back students! We’re very excited to start up a new semester and SQLU is back and better than ever! This semester we’re lucky to have 7 MVP’s, 7 Women in Tech (most ever!) and a Microsoft Certified Master (MCM) in SQL Server presenting topics. In addition to our regular lessons we have the SQL Rockstar himself, Tom LaRock (Blog | Twitter), hosting weekly DBA Coaching lessons on his blog as well. Our staff is also hard at work putting together an e-book compilation of the first two semesters-worth of content. We’re calling this compilation SQL University Vol 1: Freshman Year. As soon as we finish putting it together we’ll announce it via the mailing list along with communications on Twitter (Follow us @sqluniversity). What mailing list you ask? Well if you want to make sure you get all the latest news and updates for SQLU please sign up for our mailing list here.

Semester Schedule

We’ve posted the semester’s schedule at our main page,https://sqlchicken.com/sql-university, make sure to bookmark that page and check back regularly as all lessons will be posted there. Any changes to the schedule will be sent out to the mailing list as well as update that page. Here are the weekly topics as well as the professor teaching it that week for this semester. Another small but subtle change this year is we’ve started placing icons next to the professors names that indicate various awards/recognition such as Microsoft MVP’s, Microsoft Certified Masters (MCM) and winners/finalists for Redgate’s Exceptional DBA of the Year award.
