I have the privilege of being able to attend and present at SQLSaturday #41 – Atlanta this weekend. This will be my first SQLSaturday outside of Florida and the first time I will have presented outside of Florida. I’m looking forward to seeing many “old” friends and making even more new ones. My presentation is:
Why I Use Stored Procedures and You Should Too!
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.
With the recent release of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 there have been changes in the Microsoft ORM tools that alleviate some of the issues I have with ORM tools, but I don’t think all the issues I see have been addressed. It’s interesting that at my office we just brought in a consulting company to work on a project with us and they are proponents of Linq to SQL, so I get to try my arguments with them and hear the other side of the argument.
I’ll be flying into Atlanta Friday afternoon and should be at the speaker party of Friday night, but will miss the after-party on Saturday to be able to catch my flight back to Orlando.
If you are attending please be sure to find me on Saturday. I’ll have my contact cards, I hope you will, too!
If you have registered, but will not be able to attend please cancel your registration so someone on the waiting list can attend. Thanks!
