How I Write SQL, Part 1: Naming Conventions

Pagination with OFFSET / FETCH : A better way
Pagination doesn't always have to be painful; SQL Server 2012 certainly makes the syntax easier, but if you just plug the native syntax in, you might not always see a great benefit. Here I have shown that slightly more verbose syntax using a CTE can lead to much better performance in the best case, and arguably negligible performance differences in the worst case.

Pagination using Node, Sequelize and React – Michael McCabe – Medium
At some point, you want to display a collection of data from a database. Nice and simple. Write a query, get the data, send it on, display it in a table. Want a user to be able to click “next” and go to the next list of 10? Just plonk a simple grid of some kind on the front end and let it do it all for you!
However, its not so simple when there are a million rows. Try querying all of them and throwing that on the front end. Your page will come to a crawl, never mind your load times.

How to Open Database Connections in a Node.js/Express App
I believe that most developers working with databases already know what is a connection pool — a cache of database connections maintained so that the connections can be reused when future requests to the database are required. Connection pools are used to enhance the performance of executing commands on a database. This is a standard feature of many database driver libraries but yet is often neglected by web developers.

vba - Unmerging excel rows, and duplicate data - Stack Overflow
This is a VBA solution. This macro will search every cell in the active sheet to see if they are merged. If they are, it stores the range of the merged cells in a temp. range variable, unmerges the cells, then fills the range with the value of the first cell in the unmerged range (what the value was).

Single Page Application’s (SPAs) are typically structured with a JavaScript-heavy front end that runs in the browser, which calls the application’s web API back-end to perform its business logic. For SPAs hosted in Azure AD, you use OAuth 2.0 Implicit Grant to authenticate the user with Azure AD and obtain a token that you can use to secure calls from the application's JavaScript client to its back-end web API.

Azure Active Directory for developers | Microsoft Docs
Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is a cloud identity service that allows developers to build apps which securely sign in users with a Microsoft work or school account. Azure AD supports developers building both single-tenant, line-of-business (LOB) apps, as well as developers looking to develop multi-tenant apps. In addition to basic sign in, Azure AD also lets apps call both Microsoft APIs like Microsoft Graph and custom APIs that are built on the Azure AD platform. This documentation shows you how to add Azure AD support to your application by using industry standard protocols like OAuth2.0 and OpenID Connect.

about_Hash_Tables | Microsoft Docs
A hash table, also known as a dictionary or associative array, is a compact data structure that stores one or more key/value pairs. For example, a hash table might contain a series of IP addresses and computer names, where the IP addresses are the keys and the computer names are the values, or vice versa.
In PowerShell, each hash table is a Hashtable (System.Collections.Hashtable) object. You can use the properties and methods of Hashtable objects in PowerShell.

As part of this, you want your testbase to be maintainable in the long run so refactors of your components (changes to implementation but not functionality) don't break your tests and slow you and your team down.

about_Splatting | Microsoft Docs
Splatting is a method of passing a collection of parameter values to a command as unit. Windows PowerShell associates each value in the collection with a command parameter. Splatted parameter values are stored in named splatting variables, which look like standard variables, but begin with an At symbol (@) instead of a dollar sign ($). The At symbol tells Windows PowerShell that you are passing a collection of values, instead of a single value.
