Featured Presentation:

Database Development Toolbelt

Chad Crawford, Principal Database Engineer Henry Schein Practice Solutions

A cook can tell what spice is missing by sampling a single drop of soup, a mechanic can know what size wrench is needed just by looking at a bolt, and a potter can feel when his clay is perfectly centered as it spins on the wheel. Professionals develop their skills over time to the point where they intuitively recognize issues and know which solution to bring to bear - but gaining that skill takes time, experience and knowledge. In this session, a database developer and architect of 18 years will share powerful concepts and tools not usually taught to beginners, but frequently used by senior engineers to accomplish what used to seem impossible. We will demonstrate seven different techniques, including options for string splitting and concatenating, granting users access to instance level commands without sacrificing security, and pulling non-aggregate columns from a GROUP BY.
