Thank you

Received a ‘thank you’ note today from the new bank I have chosen to replace the mega-bank I am breaking up with.  It amazes me about how much that little, common courtesy meant to me.  One thing they could have done better?  They could have spelled my first name correctly.  But that is not entirely an uncommon mistake.

File Naming Standards

This is one thing I am very good at establishing.  At the crux of every data element there is a file that contains what you need to know.

This standard is typically defined by the task at hand and who is doing the task.

My goal is always to simplify this traceability to the lowest common denominator.

My personal bias:
People use files and views.
Systems use records.
