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.

The Hiring R Developers as SQL Developers Cheat Sheet

HR just handed you another steaming pile of SQL Developer resumes. Your last phone screening went something like “I connected Sharepoint to an Access database and ran a Macro in Excel. I’d like to make 95k.”

You’ve decided to go rogue and do your own recruiting.  You hit up a few data related user groups and stumble in to an R Users group  at the local university. You say to yourself, “Whatever else these people are, they are excited about data. “ Followed by “I wish these people knew SQL. I’d hire one tomorrow”. They continue to talk amongst themselves about dataframes, tidyverses and mutations. In a moment of clarity you realize “we’re not that different after all”.

In the upcoming Louisville SQL Users Group meeting, we’re going to walk through developing interview questions for an R user with no SQL or database experience. We’ll do a side by side comparison of R and TSQL syntax, so you can formulate screening questions, grow your interview pool  and hopefully make your hiring process less rage quit inducing.
