Key Features of this Developing Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Databases Training:

You Will Learn How To:

  • Introduce the entire SQL Server platform and its major tools. It will cover editions, versions, basics of network listeners, and concepts of services and service accounts.
  • Determine appropriate data types to be used when designing tables, convert data between data types, and create alias data types.
  • Be aware of good design practices regarding SQL Server tables and be able to create tables using T-SQL. (Note: partitioned tables are not covered).
  • Implement PRIMARY KEY, FOREIGN KEY, DEFAULT, CHECK and UNIQUE constraints, and investigate cascading FOREIGN KEY constraints.
  • Determine appropriate single column and composite indexes strategies.
  • Create tables as heaps and tables with clustered indexes. Also consider the design of a table and suggest an appropriate structure.
  • Read and interpret details of common elements from execution plans.
  • Design effective non-clustered indexes.
  • Design and implement views.
  • Design and implement stored procedures.
  • Work with table types, table valued parameters and use the MERGE statement to create stored procedures that update data warehouses.
  • Design and implement functions, both scalar and table-valued. (Also describe where they can lead to performance issues).
  • Perform basic investigation of a deadlock situation and learn how transaction isolation levels affect application concurrency.
  • Use both traditional T-SQL error handling code and structured exception handling.
  • Design and implement DML triggers.
  • Learn appropriate uses for SQL CLR integration and implement an existing .NET assembly within SQL Server.
