Main Session:  “The Accidental Programmer”

Presenter:  Jason Kassay

Program Summary:  Most people in the database world have heard of the term, “The Accidental DBA”, those programmers who have to work with databases.  How about the other side of the coin?  What about DBA’s and Dev’s who have to write code or have to work closely with programmers?  This presentation is a best practices guide for working with SQL Server in a .Net environment.  You will learn how to recognize when bad code is written that interacts with the database, how to track it down, and most importantly how to fix it.  On top of that you will also receive an introduction to object oriented programming concepts such as data abstraction, encapsulation, tier architecture, and class objects so that you can better communicate with your programmers.
