  • We need a filler course before we do SQL Performance Tuning with Grant Fritchey. His new book won't be out until the fall, so we're going to learn something completely new before we go back to Microsoft SQL Server.

    I'm excited to announce our next topic: Absolute Beginner Javascript

    We're doing JavaScript for anyone....even if you've never written code in your life. We think that existing DBAs will enjoy learning another language.

    This track is going to be a little more high pressure than previous tracks, because we want you to learn JavaScript in only eight week. I'm super excited about this. I hope you are, too!

    We are going to follow this blog post exactly:
