Development, Videos

You’re a C# or Java developer building an application that stores data in Microsoft SQL Server, and you want to avoid common pitfalls that will cause you scalability problems down the road.

Wanna see more of this? Every Saturday & Sunday morning from 9AM-11AM Eastern (iCal), you can catch me on my TwitchYouTube, or Facebook channels.
