Practical advice for the hands-on practitioner

SQL Server Worst Practices

It’s Friday the 13th and we get a surprisingly good, tongue-in-cheek post from Edgewood Solutions Engineers addressing SQLServer Worst Practices published at MsSQLTips.  And not just the top ten (with apologies to Letterman) but thirteen well written and supported practices found in the wild that you most certainly do not want to ever be associated with.  Many of the “worst practices” are SQL Server specific, but a few like 13 – No requirements (database requirements) include a useful template or outline for a baseline set of requirements which can be generalized across database platforms.  Highly recommended, this post is must read for SQL Server managers (DBA) and operations support staff responsible for optimizing database performance.
