My PASS local group, IndyPASS, has its monthly meeting tonight. At my insistence, first-time presenter Nathan Boyd is showing off a SQL tool called tsqllint. Nathan, a coworker of mine at Salesforce, is the leading developer behind this GitHub project.
A lint (or linter), if you didn’t know, “analyzes source code to flag programming errors, bugs, stylistic errors, and suspicious constructs” (wikipedia). This one is designed specifically for T-SQL, is highly configurable, and includes a Visual Studio Code extension. What more could you want, right? If you want cleaner T-SQL code out of your developers, with less hassle on the part of your reviewers, it’s definitely worth your time.
If you’re in the area, keep in mind there’s a location change tonight. While IndyPASS usually meets at Virtusa, 1401 North Meridian (formerly Apparatus), this month’s meeting is at Moser Consulting in Castleton. As usual, doors open at 5:30pm, and we’ll turn it over to Nathan by about 6:15pm.
