LANA Conference 2014

We sent Brad Berard, one of our Senior Account Executives, to the LANA (Louisiana Aging Network Association) Conference 2014 in West Monroe earlier this week to represent LANtec at a great training event. Councils on Aging and other service provider employees and Boards of Directors from the 64 parishes attended to gather information on a variety of vendors, as well as to visit beautiful Northeast Louisiana. There was a big turnout at the conference, and Brad successfully spread the word about LANtec’s popular, hands-on Elderly Sensitivity course to a multitude of current and potential clients!

For a little getaway fun, the trip consisted of a visit to the Duck Commander Headquarters and a trip to Landry’s Vineyard where an episode of Duck Dynasty was filmed. While none of the stars were spotted on this trip, the group had an awesome time exploring some of what West Monroe has to offer!PicMonkey Collage

sparkhound logoSharing code is an important part of mobile development. In the past, mobile development has been about creating numerous projects for each platform targeted and linking all of the files. To reduce the duplication of effort and code, Microsoft has created two project types to help us: Shared Projects and Portable Class Libraries (PCLs)).

Portable Class Libraries

PCLs have been around for several years now; however, only in the last year or two has it gotten uniform usability across all of the major platforms (iOS, Android, Windows Phone).

SQL Server

 

 

Top 15 Tips Beginners Should Know About SQL Server

  2. For each database, it's either SIMPLE recovery model or FULL recovery model + regular Transaction Log Backups.  These are the only two options.
  3. Don't shrink a database file unless it's an emergency.  The file grew to its current size for a reason. (Unless, of course, you forgot Lesson #2.)
  4. Shrinking a database on a schedule is about the rookiest mistake you can make, as is enabling the "AutoShrink" feature.  Never!
  5. Database Autogrowth events are unpredictable performance drains on a database. Proactively look out for database files that are experience autogrowth events, and manual grow those files yourself instead.
