Application end users typically don’t think about back-end programming. They simply use the tools at hand that make them more productive to support their organizations. And why wouldn’t they? Well-written programs are users’ conduits to crucial data related to customers, sales or accounting functions, for example. But front-line application developers are well aware of how seemingly invisible processes truly operate. After all, even if they didn’t actually write the programs, they’re often charged with supporting them. So when issues such as the length of character fields come into play, these developers must ensure they can quickly address them.
