 Feature Presentation

September 16th, 2014
The Lost Science of Set Theory
Presenter: Aaron Cutshall, Solutions Architect, Encore

A little about Aaron Cutshall:
Aaron N. Cutshall is a Solutions Architect for Encore, a Quintiles company. He has almost 30 years of experience in programming, systems design, databases and data architecture in various industries. He has been in the Healthcare Informatics field since 2006 working on very large databases involving millions of patient records and is prominent in the field of healthcare quality measurements.

Abstract:
Many database developers today do not have a Computer Science degree and may also have begun their career developing software using procedural programming languages (Java, C#, etc.) or as a database administrator. As a result, they may not have the background needed to conceptualize solutions in terms of sets of data and therefore may not be able to develop efficient set-based queries. In this session, we will review the basics of set theory and how it applies to database development to enable you to turn cursors, loops, and other procedural programming practices into efficient set-based operations that make the most use of a relational database engine
