"SQL Server: Bolts to Buzzwords" presentation for the Hammond .NET User Group at Southeastern Louisiana University

One of my favorite groups to speak for (aside from the Baton Rouge SQL Server User Group) is the Hammond .NET User Group at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, LA. A mostly undergraduate crowd of enthusiastic future developers (and perhaps some developers-turned-DBAs, like myself) make for a fun audience that asks great questions.

Here's my slidedeck for an introductory presentation on databases and SQL Server, perfect for a college crowd, most of which hadn't completed a capstone project requiring a database solution. In fact, the first line of the slidedeck details the highly important lesson of how to pronounce "SQL" - as in, "sequel" NOT "ess kew el".

Here's the download link for the PowerPoint slidedeck
