Voucher: 5-day voucher
Code: 20464
Length: 5 Days

Learn to design and develop SQL Server 2012 or 2014 databases.

Delivery format(s)
This 5-day instructor-led course introduces SQL Server 2014 and describes logical table design, indexing and query plans. It also focusses on the creation of database objects including views, stored procedures, along with parameters, and functions. Other common aspects of procedure coding, such as indexes, concurrency, error handling, and triggers are also covered in this course. Also this course helps you prepare for the Exam 70-464.Note: This course is designed for customers who are interested in learning SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014. It covers the new features in SQL Server 2014, but also the important capabilities across the SQL Server data platform.
  • Knowledge of writing T-SQL queries
  • Knowledge of basic relational database concepts
  • SQL Server platform tools including editions, versions, basics of network listeners, and concepts of services and service accounts
  • Appropriate data types used when designing tables, convert data between data types, and create alias data types
  • Design practices regarding SQL Server tables and create tables using T-SQL (partitioned tables not covered in this course)
  • Implement PRIMARY KEY, FOREIGN KEY, DEFAULT, CHECK, and UNIQUE constraints
  • Investigate cascading FOREIGN KEY constraints
  • Appropriate single column and composite index strategies
  • Create tables as heaps, tables with clustered indexes, and appropriate structure for table designs
  • Common elements from execution plans
  • Design effective non-clustered indexes
  • Design and implement views and stored procedures
  • Work with table types and table-valued parameters
  • Use MERGE to create stored procedures that update data warehouses
  • Design and implement scalar and table-valued functions
  • Investigate deadlock situation and how transaction isolation levels affect application concurrency
  • T-SQL error handling code and structured exception handling
  • Design and implement data manipulation language (DML) triggers
