The Complete TSQL Programming Course
(DBTSQL, 4 days)


This SETC certified course covers every aspect of the TSQL development language. Beginning with database basics like creating databases and tables, we proceed to a thorough investigation of the TSQL language. We discuss variable declaration, conditional and looping expressions and the use of native functions. With some basics under our belts, we are freed to look at more advanced topics like string and date time manipulation as well as the use of NULL values in tables and scripts. We also take the time to consider the use of stored procedures and BLOB data. It makes for a busy and rewarding week.
