I am working on an application prototype, that will eventually evolve into a full blown application that allows the tracking of projects through their life-cycle (beginning with the funding and through the closing of the project). As part of this, I have outlined an API of about 50 stored procedures that provide the database functionality for this application (which is otherwise an ASP.NET application). Now, since this is a prototype, I’ve just been coding away, but in the next two days, having the stored procedure API would speed up my ability to do my work. So… I am going to spend the rest of the morning doing some speed-coding. Just how many of the 50 stored procedures can I get written in the next 2-1/2 hours?

I’ll let you know after lunch…
