#sqlpass AppDev_VC Presentation Tuesday 4/12 at noon Eastern

Posted in SQL Server at 10:00 am by David Taylor

Among a bunch of other things that I do, I am also the Volunteer Coordinator for the Application Development Virtual Chapter of the Professional Association for SQL Server (AppDev_VC of PASS). We had one of the best Marketing Coordinators ever, recently made SQL Server MVP Aaron Nelson (Blog | Twitter), but as is the case with many great people, he has left us for other pursuits. This leaves us here at AppDev_VC with myself and our awesome Speaker Coordinator John Jakubowski (Blog | Twitter).

Now, I’d like to think that I’m the best at getting things done in a timely manner, but, like everyone, I am only human, and one thing piles on another, priorities get shifted, and things fall through the cracks. This time, it was the marketing for the VC that fell through. I think it was a case of I thought someone else was doing it, someone else thought I was doing it. Wasn’t getting done!

In an effort to correct that, I present this blog post 🙂

We are pleased and proud to announce that Andy Warren (Blog |Twitter) will be presenting for us Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 12 NOON Eastern time! His presentation will be on building applications not only for end users, but for DBAs to like also! I, for one, can’t wait to hear what he has to say, and I hope to see lots of you there also! Below I have copied the Description and Attendee links that are also posted on the AppDev_VC site, http://appdev.sqlpass.org.

Building Applications That A DBA Will Love
April 12, 2011, 12 PM Eastern
Presenter: Andy Warren
Attendee URL: LiveMeeting

It’s natural for the focus to be on the end user when we build applications, but it’s important and worthwhile to build into our design some things that make it easier for the DBA to provision, tune, and support the product we deliver. So what does a DBA care about? Performance of course, but also security, scalability, space usage, and yes, even documentation. This presentation will cover tips in a number of areas that address the concerns of the DBA, and we’ll talk about why you should care about making the DBA happy too!
