Just a reminder that SQLSaturday #32 – Tampa is taking place this weekend (January 23rd). This will be my 5th SQLSaturday and 4th as a speaker and every one has been a great event. As a matter of fact, I enjoy SQLSaturday’s so much that I’m bringing my non-technical wife to this one with me. You can still register here and see the schedule here.
I’ll be speaking at my 3rd SQLSaturday and my session is:
Why Should I Use Stored Procedures?
With the proliferation of ORM Tools like Linq To SQL, NHibernate, there has been a move to no longer use stored procedures for Data Access, I personally disagree. This will be a professional and polite open discussion starting with why I believe stored procedures are the best way to access data in SQL Server. Alternate view points welcome.
I’ll be sharing my views on why I believe stored procedures are better for security, performance, and maintenance. I really do hope that there will be attendees who will share their views and experiences in a professional manner. I have to agree with Paul Randal(@PaulRandal) who said on twitter the other day:
Credibility = being happy to admit it when you're wrong or don't know
Which reminds me of this verse:
A good reputation and respect are worth much more than silver and gold. (Proverbs 22:1 CEV)
So far I’ve done okay in maintaining my credibility and, I think, respect and I plan on continuing that at this event as well.
