About

We started our monthly Lunch + Learn events so that our team could have a platform to share their thoughts in a laid-back environment. It was also a good excuse to feed everyone. Since our first few events, our speakers and attendees come from all over. Our events are open to everyone.

We have events at both our Dayton and Cincinnati Offices. Our Speakers come from all over and the presentations cover a wide range of topics.

It is a great opportunity to network with attendees who have a variety of backgrounds and experience. It doesn’t matter if you’re a developer, designer, business analyst, student or someone’s mom, we would love for you to join us.

We don’t have a set monthly date but typically shoot for the last half of the month on a day that works best for the presenter. Worry not, we post the date, time, topic, and location of each event several weeks in advance.

Interested in Presenting?

We are always on the look-out for new presenters. Help us out and share the love!

Performance Tuning for SQL Developers through Execution Plans

When it comes to performance tuning the execution plan needs to be the first stop for every developer, however, many developers don’t know how to read and extract relevant information.

The goal of this presentation is to provide tools and high-level overview of pertinent information to enable each developer to start optimizing their code.

Jennifer Carder will be discussing how she uses risk-based testing to decide where testing time is best spent.

Effective Dynamic SQL
