Topic: VBUG Bracknell: SQL Server CLR and Data Tier Applications
Join us in Bracknell for a SQL Server themed meeting with our guest presenters Colin Leversuch-Roberts (aka GrumpyDBA) and Neil Hambly.
During the evening, Colin will giving a presentation on CLR functions vs TSQL functions and the related performance issues. His session will be based upon real work on the Regus system which is a complex billing system available in 1,000 centres in 75 countries world wide.
Next, Neil Hambly will be talking about Data Tier Applications (DAC). DAC was introduced in the SQL Server® 2008 R2 release. In collaboration with Microsoft Visual Studio® 2010 it allows Developers & DBAs to develop and deploy Data Tier Applications in self-contained units (dacpacs). Using DACs, developers and database administrators can now automate common operations and design practices during their database lifecycles in controlled environments
Neil will discuss the key features and perform some demonstrations of the development & then deployments of a dacpac. As with any new feature it presently has several limitations. These will be discussed including where and when this feature can be used to good effect.
