You are looking at XML right now


Welcome to my first blog post!

... well, kinda. This is actually a re-write of my first post. I am changing things up a bit, specifically what this blog is all about.

First, I am not a ninja! Not at XML, SQL or anything else. I am just a guy who is really into SQL Development (set-based) and XML (data modeling and transforms). I also think ninjas are kinda cool soo: xmlsqlninja it is. After doing both for many years I have picked up a few tricks which I will pass along. Please come back often for useful BI, T-SQL (all versions through 2012), XML, XSD and XSLT (1.0,2.0 & 3.0) tips and tricks.
