March Southwest MO SQL Server Users Group

Guest speaker for the meeting will be Kevin Kline, past president of SQL PASS, and the current Director of Engineering Services at SQL Sentry, a leading provider of award winning tools for database management and monitoring. Session Topic: Ten Things Every Developer Should Know Session Abstract: Stereotypes abound for different types of people in the IT world. Developers think DBAs are control freaks. DBAs think developers are unruly cowboys. How do we overcome these differences? If you’re a developer, your best strategy is to manage your DBAs’ anxieties and demonstrate your competence and credibility. Attend this session to learn about 10 techniques that developers can apply to their code which will calm your DBAs’ fears and earn their admiration. This session will answer questions like: --What’s the most common Transact-SQL programming mistake and how do I fix it? --How do database designers cause problems for future generations of application developers and database administrators? --Why do inexperienced database administrators make their own job more difficult and less efficient? There are a short list of mistakes that, if you know of them in advance, will make your life much easier. These mistakes are the “low hanging fruit” of application design, development, and administration. Once you apply the lessons learned from this session, you’ll find yourself performing at a higher level of efficiency and effectiveness than before. Don't forget to arrange with you manager to get off at 4:30 PM so you can be at the meeting at 5:00 PM when it starts.
