Mar 2011 ~ Leveraging TSQL to solve business problems ~ John Miner

 

Presenter: John Miner of Sensata Technologies
Topic: Leveraging Transaction SQL 2008 to solve business problems

 

This presentation will review how to build a database solution from the ground up using SQL commands. What if you were a SQL Server developer at a local consulting company tasked with creating a database for a local Boy Scout of America (BSA) Troop, where would you begin?

The following topics will be reviewed to make sure you have a successful data storage solution.

Defining the Database: Defining file groups for the database, Creating schemas to separate tables by functionality, Creating normalized tables to hold the BSA data, Adding data integrity to the design with constraints/triggers, Adding referential integrity to the design with primary/foreign keys, Adding logins/users and granting rights Loading initial Data:

Loading data into staging area with BULK INSERT, OPENROWSET or BCP, Quick review of TSQL statements for TRANSACTIONS, CONTROL FLOW, and ERROR HANDLING, Writing Stored Procedures to move staging data to production, Schedule Procedures using SQL Server Agent Giving Developers Access: Using stored procedures to lock down CRUD (create, read, update, and delete) operations, Using functions and views to look at the data differently.

In my next presentation, I will be going over advance topics such as PARTITIONING – for keeping track of all those Christmas Trees they sell each year, FILESTREAM – for showing images of the merit badges they might earn, SPATIAL – for keeping track of GPS latitude and longitude coordinates when hiking, and XML for interacting with other systems via messages.
