T-SQL Code Sins: The Worst Things We Do to Code and Why


Presenter: Jennifer McCown

Session Details


It's impossible to follow every best practice all the time. Code sins are those things we do to our code that are either so horrendous that they can't be borne, or that have such tremendous consequences that your stored procedures wish they'd never been created. Attendees will hear about the most common code sins that make code difficult to read, support, run and extend, and practical strategies for reversing the trend.
