In my last two blog posts about agile development of database applications, I have made a big mistake:

I’ve used memorable, inspirational scenes and quotations from the Fast & Furious movies, hoping they would encourage you to read our new e-book, Three Guiding Principles to Build Better Code with Development Software. The movies seemed like a good tie-in to improving productivity fast & furiously on your development team.
But you know what our web guys told me? Most of you have gone straight from our blog posts to YouTube to watch Fast & Furious trailers of cars crashing into helicopters, driving through exploding airplanes and running into stacks of propane canisters. Some of you aren’t even downloading the e-book.
Fine thing, when I’m trying to get you to focus on agile development of your database applications.
So this time I’m going to write seriously about increasing code quality and performance, with a few top-of-mind questions for all database developers:
In the same way that you want to increase code quality and performance, the Fast & Furious team wants to get all the moving parts in sync for a great Fast 8. Will Eva Mendes come back as Agent Fuentes? Where in New York City will the movie take place? Are they really going to find a role for Helen Mirren?
I don’t know.
And I need to get back to work. You do, too.
So this time, be sure to download and read our new e-book, Three Guiding Principles to Build Better Code with Development Software BEFORE you bounce off to the Fast & Furious videos on YouTube.
The e-book contains guidelines on what to look for in software tools you can use to build your own database applications.
