Vern Rabe
Data Types: the Right and the Wrong

In this demo heavy presentation, I will focus on the importance of proper selection and usage of data types. Both performance and accuracy can be adversely affected by making poor choices, and I’ll demonstrate both the right and the wrong selection and usage choices. I’ll also show some of the newer data type features.
