SQL Training Overview

In this course, you'll see an overview tour of SQL Server 2008 including its editions, components, and tools. Then you will learn about the steps to install, and/or upgrade to SQL Server 2008 and configuring the server. You will see how the principals of database design are used in creating of databases and then how to apply server tables to them. The course continues with SQL Server Management Studio and how to build effective views, stored procedures, triggers, and user-defined functions using Transact-SQL. Learn how to make your databases more scalable through partitioning and how to use .NET languages like Visual C# and Visual Basic to build database objects. SQL Server 2008 includes a rich set of tools that go beyond the basics of querying and manipulating data. You will learn how to take advantage of the user-friendly management console that integrates both authoring and administrative tasks. You will learn how to take advantage of SQL Server's tools for analyzing and tuning your databases. You'll also learn about integration servers, implementing security, and Microsoft's new Business Intelligence (BI) suite.
