. I am honored to say that I have been chosen to give an updated version of my presentation Database Development: Keep it Agile, Not Fragile at SQL Saturday 114, in Vancouver, BC, on March 17th, 2012.
The world of software development is accelerating. The time between a business idea and its release date is shrinking. That means developers, business staff, and IT personnel need to do more iterative (a.k.a. agile) design, development, and deployments. Agile development for most types of systems is a known quantity. Agile development for databases is harder, and the best practices are more obscure.
Having done a few hundred database releases in an agile fashion, I’ll be presenting best practices, anti practices, tips, tricks, demos, and scripts you can use. Don’t miss out!Permalink
One of my favorite tricks is to use INTERSECT when I have to rewrite a SELECT query, to make sure I am returning the same data.
"Success is concrete. Just like the Mafia."
Now I know my changes have not affected what data is returned. Success!Permalink
