Louisville SQL Server and Power BI User Group

Welcome to the Louisville SQL Server & Power BI Users Group!

Our group is generally made up of folks that hail from the Derby City and surrounding Ohio River Valley area, who all have a passion for Microsoft SQL Server and the technologies that surround it. 

We are a diverse group with skills ranging from "accidental DBA's" to senior administrators, seasoned developers to big data analysts and all of the other backgrounds that fall in between.

Do you love to learn? 

Do you love sharing what you know about the complex challenges of working with SQL Server?

Then come join us, and make yourself at home.

Transforming Data Using the T-SQL PIVOT / UNPIVOT Operators

Jeff Foushee, Enterprise Database Administrator Humana Inc

Ever wish your horizontal data were vertical for easier data storage, or vice-versa for reporting purposes? Are you writing elaborate routines to transform between them for one-time usage? Are your queries repeating "OUTER JOIN" or "UNION” so often that you wind up back in Kansas when your read them aloud? Join Jeff Foushee as he explains SQL Server's lesser-known PIVOT and UNPIVOT operators using SQL 2014. After this session, you will no longer need to rotate your monitor!

About Jeff:
Jeff Foushee has his MCITP certification in both SQL Server and Windows Server. He is also an Enterprise DBA at Louisville-based Humana, Inc., where he supports almost 20,000 databases on 1,800 SQL Servers.
