Event Details

When good SQL Design goes bad:

Take what you’ve learned about SQL Server and turn it upside down.

In this humorous session I’ll be contesting many of the so called “best practices” in SQL Server and demonstrating counter arguments. Come along to see how so called “pillars” of design are starting to break down.

  • When you should NOT use stored procedures
  • When we don’t need indexes
  • When Clustered Tables are bad
  • When Identity Columns should not be Primary Keys
  • When we don’t care about fragmentation
  • When good naming convention’s go bad
  • Why Partitioning often makes your queries slower
  • When it makes sense for ORMS to make all your parameters nvarchar (max)

Health Warning: Do not try these concepts on your production system.
