Description:
Whether you`re new to SQL or a more experienced developer, this course is a great start and an eye-opener on how much you`re missing out on in SQL. You will cover, how to create complex inner and outer joins, summary queries, and subqueries. What the different data types are and how to handle the common problems you run into with various types of data. How to use built-in functions or write your own to handle everyday challenges. You will also see the basics of database design and implementation using the Management Studio.
Prerequisites:
No particular programming experience is required, the course is taught from a developer`s perspective but it will also suit those new to relational databases and database technology.
