SCUD?

  • I've come across this acronym in a few places recently, one being a SQL Server DBA job description. Does anybody know what it stands for, in database related terms?

    I've come across this acronym in a few places recently, one being a SQL Server DBA job description. Does anybody know what it stands for, in database related terms?

    I've heard of CRUD, which is Create Read Update Delete, but the only thing i can find related to SCUD references whether you can recover your data from a full disaster:

  • Never heard that one, but might be: Select Create Update Delete. These kids today and their modern slang.

  • I occasionally refer to CUD, Create, Update, Delete, when discussing the parts of ORM tools that I (sometimes) don't have problems with. Nothing in Bingle either. I think you may have misheard, or it's a local thing to particular company.

  • Thanks for the feedback.

    The job ad definitely says SCUD. Here is the particular qualification statement ...

    "Must have minimum eight years' experience with SQL, coding queries, SCUD, stored procedures and data import/export."

    I suspect the previous suggestion of Select, Create, Update and Delete is correct. If I get an interview, I'll be sure to respectfully ask about it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Most likely the recruiter couldn't their own notes when getting the job description from their client. I suspect it probably is CRUD. Can't really expect recruiter to know all the lingo we throw around routinely. ๐Ÿ˜€

    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.

    To be serious, it is likely as others have said: Select Create Update Delete.

  • How about : SELECT, COUNT,ย UPSERT,ย DELETE.

    I've just been working on a crud generator but changed it's name to reflect what my 4 procedures do.

  • It could be CRUD but only when implemented by Scrum.ย  Or maybe it's a framework which launches projects miles over the horizon where they explode.

    scud (verb):

    1. to move or run swiftly especially as if driven forward

    2. to run before a gale

    Maybe they're asking for someone who can performance tune SQL queries and ETL - which is nice to have. Or, perhaps they want someone who can crank out stored procedures at a fast pace - which is more questionable.
