Bird in hand pub , Woking, GB


Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, these sessions will now be given at a meeting later in the year.
We'll still be meeting at the venue for food, drink, socialising and some unconference style chat though. ;)

Going Native with SQL Server 2012 and C++
(with Nick Haslam)

I’ll take you through the delights of creating a module to interact with SQL Server 2012, a function in T-SQL (briefly), then using C# to create a SQL CLR module, and then looking into the performance gains by making a C++ application querying the SQL Native Client (ODBC). All three sections will do the same job, and we’ll cover the advantages and disadvantages of each.

We'll cover the following:

  • T-SQL, SQL CLR (C#)
  • SQL Server Native Client
  • Advantages and Disadvantages
  • Performance Opportunities
  • How to use it to connect to SQL Server from C++
  • How to query a database
  • Comparison between T-SQL, SQL CLR & C++ solutions


Nick is a BI Consultant for TAH Ltd & has worked with SQL Server since 6.5. Recently, he's been working towards the MCM SQL certification, and developing large Data warehouses with SQL Server & Wherescape RED. He has numerous Microsoft Certifications including MCITP's on SQL Server 2008 (Database Administrator and Database Developer), MCTS's on SQL Server 2005, SharePoint & Dynamics CRM. He has a secret; he codes C++ when the lights go out.
