One of the things I miss the most is my dear Lazyweb. Even though, I know that many of you, my ocasional or fanatic readers (hi mom!), have more than the necessary skills to help me on my doubts.
So, this time I want to learn from you a couple book titles I should read in order to become a master in what concerns database design. From indexes to partitioning, from transactions to locks and clustering, I’m deeply interested in it all. I have some basic knowledge on some of these issues, but as I said, I want to be a master.
Also, I’d like to know from the .NET developers which persistence mechanism they use and why. I’m looking for something as open and mature as Hibernate for Java! I know there’s NHibernate, still I think it lacks a lot of functionality.. Am I wrong here?!
Cheers and thanks for all the fish!
