SQL Best Practices

If you are a software developer, it’s very likely that you will have to create a database at some point in your career.  When you do, it is VITAL that you design your database with best practices to prevent further issues as the applications grows, especially when you develop at an enterprise level.

While most books and training courses on software development will cover the basics of database design, this is not enough for a serious developer.

I highly recommend that you take the time to learn and implement Best Practices as this will result in;
  • Faster Development
  • Improved Maintainability
  • Better Performance

Phil Steffek (a real SQL guru of note) has created a concise SQL Best Practices Guide that when implemented as part of your development strategy will have your DBA eating out of your hand.

The basic edition is all that you will need as a software developer, so go check it out at SQL Best Practices
