Collation.. Collation... Collation... The in's and out's..

Samantha Fahrmann, Database Administrator Modern Woodmen Of America

Collation can be an unknown or ignored topic to most database administrators and developers that use the default. When changed without understanding, it can quickly become a nightmare. This session is geared toward education on what collation is, what its benefits are, how to avoid major issues, and how to correct them when all is said and done.

About Samantha:
I Graduated from University of Northern Iowa in 2010 with my BA in Computer Science. I previously worked for a Law Enforcement Software company as a developer and accidental DBA for over 7 years. Since Aug 2016, I've dived into the DBA world fully at Modern Woodmen of America and loving every minute. My passion for SQL Server came about when I was wanting to learn more about performance. I started attending the SQL Saturdays, with my first being in Iowa City in 2012. The one thing I love more than anything is to always learn something knew every chance I get.
