Baltimore Meetup – 20 Oct at Oracle NSG

Mark you calendars; Friday October 20th at 6pm Helen Sanders will be coming to the Columbia Maryland to speak to the National Capital Area Oracle Users Group. Helen is an interesting and dynamic speaker who will captivate you with tales from behind the keyboard.

Title: The Good, the Bad & the Ugly: A SQL Saga

Coding Standards? Good testing procedures? Data validation? Who needs them? We all do! Come and learn from some of the bad coding practices and sloppy SQL mistakes that I have seen (and maybe a few I’ve committed!). We’ll share a few laughs and most likely some groans, and also talk about how testing and more testing can help you check yourself.


Helen is an Assistant Director of Applications Development and Support Services in the Student Collaboration Center at Temple University. She is also an Oracle database developer and enthusiast.

Helen has been active in the Oracle Development Tools User Group (ODTUG) for several  years,  is  a graduate of their Leadership Program, served as the Program Coordinator for the 2016-2017 year, and is very active in their Database and Women in Technology Communities.
