  • About Database

    A database is a collection of data stored and maintained for one or more uses. Most modern databases are managed by a Database Management System (DBMS), a set of computer programs that controls the creation, maintenance, and the use of the database with computer as a platform or of an organization and its end users. It allows organizations to place control of organization-wide database development in the hands of database administrators (DBAs) and other specialists.

    The proper integration of databases can dramatically increase the functionality of all types of applications, whether or not Web-enabled.

Course Outline

This Developing Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Databases training class introduces SQL Server 2014 and describes logical table design, indexing and query plans. It also focuses 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.

The primary audience for this course is IT Professionals who want to become skilled on SQL Server 2014 product features and technologies for implementing a database.

  • Learn 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.
  • Learn to determine appropriate data types to be used when designing tables, convert data between data types, and create alias data types.
  • Learn to 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).
  • Learn to implement PRIMARY KEY, FOREIGN KEY, DEFAULT, CHECK and UNIQUE constraints, and investigate cascading FOREIGN KEY constraints.
  • Learn to determine appropriate single column and composite indexes strategies.
  • Learn to create tables as heaps and tables with clustered indexes. Also consider the design of a table and suggest an appropriate structure.
  • Learn to read and interpret details of common elements from execution plans.
  • Learn to design effective non-clustered indexes.
  • Learn to design and implement views.
  • Learn to design and implement stored procedures.
  • Learn to work with table types, table valued parameters and use the MERGE statement to create stored procedures that update data warehouses.
  • Learn to design and implement functions, both scalar and table-valued. (Also describe where they can lead to performance issues).
  • Learn to perform basic investigation of a deadlock situation and learn how transaction isolation levels affect application concurrency.
  • Learn to use both traditional T-SQL error handling code and structured exception handling.
  • Learn to design and implement DML triggers.
  • Learn to learn appropriate uses for SQL CLR integration and implement an existing .NET assembly within SQL Server.
  • Learn to store XML data and schemas in SQL Server.
  • Learn to perform basic queries on XML data in SQL Server.
  • Learn to work with the GEOGRAPHY and GEOMETRY data types.
  • Learn to implement and query a full-text index.
  • Knowledge of writing T-SQL queries.
  • Knowledge of basic relational database concepts.
