Why Should I use Stored Procedures?
July 14th 12:00 PM MDT (GMT -6)

Presenter: Jack Corbett


With the proliferation of ORM Tools like Linq To SQL, NHibernate, there has been a move to no longer use stored procedures for Data Access, I personally disagree. This will be a professional and polite open discussion starting with why I believe stored procedures are the best way to access data in SQL Server. Alternate view points welcome.
