T-SQL Tuesday was started by Adam Machanic ( Blog | @AdamMachanic ) in 2009. It’s a monthly blog party with a rotating host, who is responsible for providing a new topic each month. In case you’ve missed a month or two, Steve Jones ( Blog | @way0utwest ) maintains a complete list for your reading enjoyment.
This July’s T-SQL Tuesday is now over. Well over a dozen people contributed their insight and wisdom, and they’re well worth a read.
