Using a predictive technology inside something that moves your data around really makes sense sometimes although not a lot of people are taking advantage of it. Let me show you how to use the two together
Designing dimensional and fact tables using a case study to understand data modelling
Many DBAs take routine database maintenance for granted. What they don’t understand is that the cumulative effect of poor database maintenance can significantly hurt performance. In this session, you will learn the key things all DBAs need to know in order to maintain their databases at peak performance.
Although test-driven development is now considered common sense in the OO world, it is very rare in database development. This session looks at the reasons behind this and presents solutions and best practices for test-driven database development. Database TDD and testing is analysed from two aspects: unit-testing in the database (stored procedures,views) and integration testing from the object service/web layer down to the database. I also present DbFit, an extension to FIT/FitNesse that makes database TDD easy
This session is aimed at database developers, technical architects and Java/.NET developers working on enterprise applications.
How to plan, install and configure a clustered SQL Server
Come to this session to see how you can create a logging, monitoring and profiling solution for your existing or new SSIS packages overcoming all usual problems that a typical solution brings: increasing package complexity, longer development times and so on. The session will propose a standard, out-of-the-box solution for all of these challenges.
Showing how Visual Studio Team Edition for DB Professionals addresses problematic issues such as schema management, source control, testing, data generation and deployment.
You maybe have heard about Linq to SQL, you may have heard about the Entity Framework but there is an open source framework getting a lot more attention called NHibernate.
What does it mean that my index is fragmented? Why do I get a warning about index record sizes? How should I store images in SQL Server? Knowing how SQL Server stores data and what options there are to control this can help you to build more efficient applications. In this session we will look at how table and index data is stored on disk. We will look at the various data types available, from bits to filestreams, how indexes can be used to optimize read or write performance, and how row and page compression work.
Discover how to build a real world SSIS package. Learn how to set up a package configuration, Manipulate package variables. Process multiple files and capture errors. Learn some workarounds for SSIS limitations (bugs).
