Free 301 page ebook “Defensive Database Programming with SQL Server”, written by Alex Kuznetsov. The goal of Defensive Programming is to produce resilient code that responds gracefully to the unexpected.
Inside this book, you will find dozens of practical, defensive programming techniques that will improve the quality of your T-SQL code and increase its resilience and robustness.
This book describes a lot of specific problems, and typical approaches that will lead to more robust code, However, the main goal is more general: it is to demonstrate how to think defensively, and how to proactively identify and eliminate potential vulnerabilities in T-SQL code during development rather than after the event when the problems have already occurred.
