Podcast Episode 22 – In Defense of Stored Procedures

Gavel - Labeled for CC Reuse, From http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b2/CourtGavel.JPGEpisode 22 finds me talking about Stored Procedures. Stored Procedures have gotten a bad rap not just recently, but for over a decade. Stored Procedure apologists don’t always help the matter and misinformation abounds. I take a look at stored procedures and why it isn’t the worst thing in the world if you use them.

I haven’t forgotten my last podcast about religious arguments and I try to take an honest look at when stored procedures aren’t terrible, when ORMs are best, and when in-line parameterized SQL might be your best option. Too often, I feel that developers are scared of the database because they don’t know it or only have a limited view of what it could be for. In this episode, I look at it from all angles.
