Topic: #41-Get a Lever and Pick Any Turtle: Lifting with Metadata
Integrated metadata is a required element of all RDBMSs. In addition to ANSI INFORAMTION_SCHEMA and metadata on implementation-specific features like indexes, SQL Server also offers a very powerful extended properties feature. In this talk, I cover using the basic metadata combined with extended properties and demonstrate practical usage to organize and document a system's design and monitor the health of a system's compliance with design rules.
