Discovering Full Text Search

And so Code Camp 2011 comes to a close for another year. I can honestly say I had a great time and enjoyed presenting my topic: Discovering Full Text Search

Apologies for not being able to get through all the demos, I'm a bit disappointed about that as there were a couple I think were of great value. One in particular around the thesaurus as there were a couple of questions I think it would have answered quite well.

However, this then becomes a great opportunity to present the topic again at the Auckland SQL Users Group. There were quite a few people from Auckland who admitted to having not attended the users group before - it would be good to see some of you. We have free pizza and beer!

The goodness

Until then, you're welcome to view/download the slides to the presentation.
And grab the code for the demos - even the ones I skipped. You will need the AdventureWorks2008R2 database which you can download from

If you did attend, thanks for coming and I hope you enjoyed it and managed to get something out of it.


I'd love some feedback. I'm still fairly new to presenting so have a long way to go. What did you like, what didn't you like? Could you hear me OK, did I mumble? etc. Feel free to leave a comment or perhaps more ideally drop me a email (see my contact page above).

Shameless Plug

We've got SQL Saturday coming up. There's going to be fireworks! Literally. Its on the 5th of November. Put it in your diaries. More info will be available on the Auckland SQL website ( when it becomes available.

If you did not hang around for Leo Millers excellent security presentation you missed a couple of things:

Until next year...
