Developing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases (MS 10776)

Course Length: 5 Days

This course is one of five courses required to pass the MCSE: Data Platform exam.

This 5-day instructor-led course introduces SQL Server 2012 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 transactions, concurrency, error handling, triggers, and SQL CLR are also covered in this course. Also, this course helps you prepare for the Exam 70-464.

All the labs for this course can be performed using the provided virtual machines. However, if you have a Microsoft Windows Azure account and the classroom virtual machines connect to the internet you may be able to connect to your Azure server and database from the classroom. Many of the labs in this course are enabled for you to perform the lab while connected to your own Azure database in the cloud. Your instructor should be able to provide a current list of Azure enabled labs.


Course Objectives

After completing this course, students will be able 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Store XML data and schemas in SQL Server.
  • Perform basic queries on XML data in SQL Server.
  • Work with the GEOGRAPHY and GEOMETRY data types
  • Implement and query a full-text index.
