When I read the article from MidnightDBA (I should say MidnightDBAs because it is about Jen and Sean) regarding T-SQL for the Absentminded DBA, my natural reaction was that it is a perfect extension.
A year ago around the same month, I had created SQL Server Cheatsheet. I have distributed a lot of copies of it since I produced it. In fact, while attending TechMela in Nepal today, I am getting many requests to get copies of SQL Server Cheatsheet. When I checked my RSS feed, I realized that Jen and Sean have a perfect cheat sheet for intermediate level developers.
I would like to suggest to all of you to read their post and download the Absentminded DBA’s Cheat Sheet for IntermediateTSQL. It is available in two formats: PDF and Docx.
I just love how the members of the community help each other grow. I am fortunate that I have received excellent feedback/corrections and criticism on my blog posts for so many times. Criticism and corrections, after all, are absolutely needed and make a better community as a whole.
I have been overwhelmed with the request for SQL Server Cheat Sheet recently. I absolutely think it is tremendously useful; its hand written form is adorning my wall since a long time. Having realized its usefulness I got it done professionally and distributed it at TechEd in Hyderabad, TechEd in Ahmedabad, and TechEd on Road in Trivendrum. Now, they are very much in demand.
Every morning when I wake up and check my email, I receive 50+ requests for SQL Server Cheat Sheets. Just a few days back I got few SQLAuthority.com stickers done and I now am getting so many requests for the same. Thank you very much for your great support and response. It gives me great pleasure to come with something innovative and useful for you all!
I have SQL Server Cheat Sheet already available online where its soft copy can be downloaded easily.
So far, I have been giving away SQL Server Cheat Sheet to everyone who has been requesting me. However, now only a few copies are left with me. It has been very expensive for me to send out this to everybody nationally and internationally.
As I have limited piece of stickers and cheat sheet at this moment. I have just come up with an idea. Send me your physical address with 3 of your most favorite articles of SQLAuthrority blog. I have created a list of top 10 articles. If the 3 articles selected by you is a part of my top 10 articles, I will right away send you SQL Server Cheat Sheet with SQLAuthority.com stickers. Make sure that you have your physical address included along with your email address where you would prefer get informed if you are selected.
I just hope this way I will be able to send these to my every dedicated fan. Follow me on twitter.

I promise to all the developers that after participating in this session they will certainly become faster and smarter developers and realize its benefits. I will touch base on tricks of SSMS, which will give you an edge over your co-workers.

Very frequently I have been asked to create a page, post or article where in one page all the important concepts of SQL Server are covered. SQL Server 2008 is very large subject and can not be even covered 1000 of pages. In daily life of DBA there are few commands very frequently used and for novice developers it is good to keep all the important SQL Script and SQL Statements handy.
I have attempted to create cheat sheet for SQL Server 2008 most important commands. User can print this in one A4 size page and keep along with them. This can be used in interviews where T-SQL scripts are being asked.
Let me know your opinion and if you find this useful.
I think this is most popular question I receive in email, if I have SQL Server cheat sheet. Well, SQL Server is very wide subject and covering all the main topics of SQL Server will take 100 pages book as cheat sheet. I have tried to create one page cheat sheet which I use for my daily use. I use this quite often and my teammates uses them as well.
You can download and print this cheat sheet and use it for your personal reference. If you have any suggestions, please let me know and I will see if I can update this SQL Server cheat sheet.
One of the most popular request I have received on this blog is to create one page which list all the SQL Server FAQs. SQL Server technology is very broad as well very deep. This is my humble attempt to list few of the daily used details in one page. Let me know your opinion and suggestion.
