WHAT ARE THE DOS AND DON’TS FOR SQL DEVELOPERS
This Blog is originally posted on Cooperative Computing.
SQL is an acronym for Structured Query Language. It can be called a means of communication with the database. As per ANSI (American National Standards Institute), the standard language for systems concerned with the management of relational database, is SQL.
Here in this blog, we have discussed a few tips that will help SQL developers in efficient programming.
Get familiar with your tools first. This is something that not only SQL developers should do, but anyone in any business must do. Knowing your tools means you’ll be able to decide what tool should be used for a particular task and which tool should be ditched. That not only saves your time but ultimately lead to adept programming.
Avoid using cursors. In order to become one of the smartest SQL developers we suggest don’t use any cursors as they deteriorate your performance.
Another noteworthy aspect is that you must make sure that you check the quality of your codes by means of a sample run using large databases. That gives you precision.
Avoid transferring a large amount of data using INSERT, unless you don’t have any other way out. It’s subtle and might also utilize a lot of time in execution.
Being SQL developers is not easy as a piece of cake. It involves several techniques all of which cannot be accommodated in the capacity of this blog. However, you can subscribe to this blog in order to learn more about SQL. Happy coding, till then.
