If you have meet me at a conference last year I am sure we have discussed my favorite topic: "Surrogate Keys"
Why is this so important to me?
The key message we have heard the last few years at every conference has been repeatable solutions, but if you want to create repeatable solutions it all starts with repeatable code.
So what has that to do with Surrogate Keys you might ask?
Well Surrogate Keys are one way (and until today one of the best I have found) to create functionality that is completely generic and reusable. Back a few years before I had even formalized my thoughts about this I called it "LEGO Programming" (okay I am Danish and love LEGO. Deal with it J) because I wanted to create code similar to these wonderful building blocks that can be placed anywhere in a construction and they just work.
LEGO is just one of these wonderful toys that you can be very creative with.
Why should my code be any different?
Well back to why Microsoft should look at this as a standard part of the platform:
Just to be clear I am not pointing at anybody with my examples. They were developed in another age and great at the time. All I am trying to say is that we need to change gears.
It is time to start thinking generically and hold ourselves to a higher standard.
