What Can Go Wrong with Data… Will

There is no reason we should be coding for data quality in our apps.

Is your data correct? Do you “get” isolation levels in a database and why they are important? Do you think in referential integrity? Foreign keys? Every app has different requirements for data correctness and the power of a SQL can help you manage these things.

The relational database is powerful but misunderstood by many. And the concept of ACID transactions is used loosley without much depth of explanation of how it is used. In this session we will dive into relational SQL and talk through:

  • What is data isolation and what can go wrong with your data
  • What are isolation levels for a database
  • Dirty Reads, Phantom reads, Non-repeatable reads, and the problems with inconsistent transactions
  • Referential integrity, foreign keys and the power of SQL.
